I have an Audigy 2 ZS and I don't think it has a front panel header on it for the headphone and mic ports on my case.

If I plug the header into the motherboard's audio will it direct my soundcard'a audio back to the motherboard and to the front panel? Or would I I have to enable the motherboard's built on audio for that to happen (and it wouldn't use the Audigy at all when using the front panel headphones).

It's a 1156 motherboard so I think it's "HD audio" connector rather than AC97 if that makes a difference.

The front panel audio connectors generally go into whatever device you want to handle the audio. Motherboard if you want it to do it, soundcard if you want it to do it

Either way, only front panel anything for the 2 ZS I'm aware of is the breakout box, SB0250; I don't think it has AC97 or HD audio connectors.

Indeed it does not, but it's possible to make an adapter cable like described here:

I think some eBay/AliExpress shops may sell such cables.

Yep, I use that adapter on my X-Fi Xtreme Music to get front panel out on my X58 Lanparty rig.
