No - your nameserver is merely logging messages that highlight the
abysmal state of the DNS today. Each one of the zones listed (in the
"Lame server on "X" portion, where X is the zone) has a nameserver
supposed to be hosting it, but isn't.

Get a copy of DoC or dnswalk and run it against your own domains to make
sure your domains are not in a similar state.
