Hello delonasn,

This is a known bug within cPanel and can be disregarded. cPanel checks the local server for DNS in cPanel causing this error. As long as you can check them at the following link you DNS should work fine.
Port25 Domain Key Wizard

This information was taken from our full tutorial titled "SPF Records and Domain Keys: Combating Spam"
