Yes, the chancery package switches the whole roman font to Zapf  
Chancery. I should have checked in detail.

You can then remove the call to this package, and try instead:

\DeclareTextFontCommand{\dedication}{\fontfamily{pzc}\selectfont}
Some {\fontfamily{pzc}\selectfont calligraphic} text.

or even better for a dedication:

\newenvironment{mydedication}
   {\fontfamily{pzc}\selectfont\large}
   {}
\begin{mydedication}
This is my dedication.
\end{mydedication}

You can then transform the mydedication environment to perform some  
formatting (center, add text before and after, add margins like quote  
and quotation, and so forth).

Hope this helps,
