Unfortunately it doesn't work that way on NT.  You should be able to add a
Key to each service called DependsOnService as a REG_MULTI_SZ (they're in
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\)
Then add the name of the service to wait for as the value.

In your case, you would add the key to WinVNC and tell it to wait for ZA.
Have a look at IISADMIN for an example.

You have to use Regedt32 instead of Regedit to be able to add a REG_MULTI_SZ

A common method to change startup sequence is to change the filenames of the
affected files, so that they alphabetically come in the desired order.  This
method is used on UNIX and Macintosh systems, so I see no reason why it
shouldn't work on Windows in some form.
