This feature is no longer recommended.

Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The zoom event occurs when the user initiates an action which causes the current view of the SVG document fragment to be rescaled.
