Bind sysquery error messages


I was wondering what these log entries could mean. They do not appear every day, but they seem a bit weird.

Code:
Jun 22 17:15:29 carmine named[23374]: sysquery: findns error (2) on NSC.NIC.uk?

Jun 22 17:15:29 carmine named[23374]: sysquery: findns error (2) on NS4.NIC.uk?
Jun 22 17:15:29 carmine named[23374]: sysquery: findns error (2) on NS7.NIC.uk?
Jun 22 17:15:29 carmine named[23374]: sysquery: findns error (2) on NS7.NIC.uk?
Am I being paranoid?

According to the list of bind messages:
Quote:
sysquery: findns error (NXDOMAIN) on ns3.oclc.org?
CATEGORY: default
SEVERITY: info
PAGE:
FURTHER INFO:

Indicates that your name server tried to resolve the IP address of ns3.oclc.org because that domain name appeared on the right side of an NS record, but that your name server encountered an error while looking up the address. NXDOMAIN (or 3) means that the domain name ns3.oclc.org doesn't exist or that it was an alias (it's not legal to point an NS record at an alias). The error SERVFAIL (or 2) indicates that the authoritative name servers for oclc.org are probably badly misconfigured.
You have nothing to worry about unless you're responsible for NS?.NIC.uk.
