This is due to the IP address of the L root server changing, but that happened back in March 2016!

 

This message gets spat out when you are running a name server with L root server hints that point to the old IP address. I would have expected Infoblox to have updated their code by now, what version of NIOS are you running?

 

You can ignore the message as it "learns" the new IP address from the other root servers, it's just highlighting that your hints are out of date.
