I don't know of a serif typeface like that. In fact, I have only one font (out of ~250) that clearly distinguishes the zero glyph, not just by shape, but with a mark. It's Andale Mono from Monotype Corp., and IIRC, it's available free from Microsoft (or comes with Office or something). But: 

-- The zero isn't really slashed; it has a fat dot in the middle. 
-- It's about as far from TNR as it could be -- it's a monospaced sans serif font. 

Not exactly what you're looking for, but I thought I'd mention it... :-}
