DNS Root server updating auth zone

I have been asked to take over the DNS/Sendmail services at my company and 
in looking over the system I noticed several messages in the logs that look 
like the following:

 named[85]: [].53 attempted update to auth zone "" 

Because the IPs are all from the root DNS servers and the db.cache was out 
of date, I updated it with the most current and restarted in.named. A day 
later and I am still receiving the errors. Everything looks to be correct 
when compared to my DNS and Bind manual. Is this a normal message or any 
ideas what might be wrong? We are running SunOS 4.1.3 with the native BIND.
