DNS recursive queries and security

When using http://www.squish.net/dnscheck/ to examine some DNS
configurations it reports:
Security: Server NS1.DOM.COM (x.x.x.x) is recursive
when getting the SOA record.
According to the bind book, bind will make recursive queries to it's
forwarders (if you use the forwarders option).
I was, so I commented the section out and restarted named, but it still
reports this error. I'm guessing this is just a propagation thing.
Is this the correct interpretation? Do I have anything to worry about? I
tried several other well-known domains and they get the same security
warning. redhat.com does not :)
Running 9.1.3-4 from Redhat RPM on 7.2.
