Good, finally I found de answer to my own question. In Model options, Miscellaneous Outputs, checking RDD/EDD file I got shown the names of the zones in de Summary Report.

Anyway, I am grateful for the help received.

@Ruben it looks like you may be using an evaluation version of DesignBuilder in which case zones and other EnergyPlus input objects are identified using a number. With a full licence you will see the zone name that you entered here. If you contact DesignBuilder sales and ask for a "full" evaluation licence they should be able to help.
