You probably defined a plane which is right on a boundary. With numerical error on the mesh location that means 50% of the nodes lie on one side of the boundary and 50% on the other.

The best approach is to use the boundary as your object, not a plane. Otherwise move the plane into the domain by a tiny fraction, just enough to get beyond the numerical noise.
