Symmetry in Fluent: Force-Y not equal to zero?

I am simulating a 3d rear wing:
And I have a problem or question with the symmetry boundary condition. I put the ZX plane as a Symmetry in Fluent (it is the symmetry plane of the wing), but when I simulate it, the value of Force in the Y axis is not equal to zero. Why? What is the geometry that is simulated? Complete wing or only a half of it?

Only the half of your model is computed. That's why you don't get zero at F-Y.
