I cannot say for sure because I haven't check that but using line is not equivalent to using parametric_plot as I would expect parametric_plot to use finer drawing techniques than just a collection of connected lines.

You could the 'lambda trick' use instead : parametric_plot ((lambda t : zeta (I + t) . real (), lambda t : zeta (I + t) . imag ()), (t, -2 , 2))

The drawback is that this computes the value of the function twice which isn't very elegant.

The lambda trick is necessary every time you need to use a complex function with drawing/solving equations with sage. This is possible that optimization techniques relying on formal expression expect these expressions to be real valued.
