Usually this happens when you create an interface between two domains (define/mesh interfaces...), but usually this will not cause a problem. From Fluent 13 user manual "33.8.1 Create/Edit Mesh Interfaces Dialog Box":
"...Boundary Zone 1, Boundary Zone 2 display the names of the wall boundary zones that ANSYS FLUENT creates during the creation of a non-periodic mesh interface. If the two interface zones overlap each other, then the wall boundaries are created but with zero faces..."

This may not be the serious issue. At first sight it seems rediculous. But, try to solve the problem, ignoring the note, and, after few iterations, view your results in tecplot. You will notice that they are there. Regards.
