With zoom scopes I have found when at lower magnification it’s not much of a problem but at higher it could be a problem. It also varies by scope.

 

When target distance is significantly less than the parallax setting, and you turn down the magnification on a high power scope, parallax error is often at its worst. Even when the clarity looks OK.

Try it. Turn down a high power scope to the lowest magnification. Put a target at 10yds but set your parallax wheel at 25yds. If you bob your head while viewing the target, you'll often see significant parallax error.
