quoting the C spec

If an object that has static storage duration is not initialized explicitly,
 if it has pointer type, it is initialized to a null pointer;
 if it has arithmetic type, it is initialized to (positive or unsigned) zero;
 if it is an aggregate, every member is initialized (recursively) according to these rules;
 if it is a union, the first named member is initialized (recursively) according to these
