views, recursion, and allow-recursion

Hi my options statement I have

allow-recursion {; !;};

acl "internal" {;};

view "internal" {
match-clients { internal; };
recursion yes;
allow-transfer { internal; !; };
internal zone defs;

View "external" {
match-clients { any; };
recursion no;
external zone defs;

When I start named, syslog shows:

named[32493]: both "recursion no;" and "allow-recursion" active for
view external

Lookups based on the views acls show me the views configuration seems
to be working. Local clients can lookup addresses fine, nothing
appears to be amiss. What exactly does this syslog message mean?
