Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Zero sperm count means there is probably a block in his semen delivering tubes called vas deferens. H can get aspiration done to see if sperm is present and then that can be artificially inseminated in his wife's uterus to cause pregnancy. this requires prior testing and would cost a bit as well. kindly get him examined by the Doctor, get his hormone levels checked like Testosterone, FSH, LH as well.

General Surgeon Dr. Avinash Vishwani's  Response
The patient needs to be worked up with initial physical examination which includes looking for the testicular descent into scrotum and if he has attained the sexual maturity characters according to age...
I would also ask how did he gave the sample and how much time lapse was there between his giving sample and it reaching the laboratory
Next I would advice the hormonal assays which include serum F.S.H. And serum testosterone.... Next in case of any suspicious findings in examination I would like to get a ultrasonography of scrotum.... Later depending on the reports would like to plan the treatment
