In your example, \mathcal{Z} is taken from Computer Modern Symbol,  
because chancery.sty just redefines roman default to pzc family (the  
``y'' does come indeed from URW Chancery).

So, Jan's ``Z'' seems to me just Computer Modern calligraphy Z, but I  
have no idea either from which font his ``y'' comes from.
