Nikon Variable scopes

I was once told that the main failing of a variable scope where price is concerned is that with a lesser expensive scope such as the 4.5-14 Nikon Buckmaster, if you change power, you lose the zero. If you're at 6 power and zoom into 12 power, you lose the zero. If you turn it back to 6 power, you still lose the zero you had at 6 power, and need to resight the scope all over again.

But (and this is what I was told) that with high end scopes they hold their zero even when changing power.

I was thinking of mounting a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14 scope on a 22 rimfire CZ Lux. But if the above is true I think not.
