No. Zero resistance is not possible in any braided or solid copper conductor, but close to zero is good enough for a distributor lead. The longer the wire gets, the more resistance it will have. The resistance in a foot long piece of #16 braided wire is so miniscule, you'd need to set a digital Ohmeter on R times 1000 to detect it. Ballast resistors or "resitance wire" is used in-line at the (battery) positive supply side of the coil.
The distributor lead wire from the coil is simply a messenger to ground.
