From my understanding of the Rules as Written, once you lost control over a Zombie (or Skeleton) that you raised from the dead using Animate Dead, casting the spell again does not give you control again. As mentioned by Dale M., killing the zombie/skeleton gives you a new pile of raw material that you can re-raise. Probably the easiest way to deal with the ...


Animate Dead says: Choose a pile of bones or a corpse of a Medium or Small humanoid within range. Zombies are creatures and are neither "a pile of bones or a corpse" so they are not a valid target for the spell. Once you have killed the Zombie, it is once again a corpse and can be animated, or even resurrected.
