Is Error 000372 an Error or Warning?

Has anyone else ever received the following error message when running the Append tool, but found that the records were copied into your dataset?

 

Error: ERROR 000372: Spatial Reference for output is invalid, Please update to allow output to become valid
Failed to execute (Append).

 

I understand how this may be a technical error, but because the records were copied over, it almost seems like a false positive.  Does anyone know why this is an error message instead of a warning?  Typically when  you get an error message, the tool failed.  But in this case, the records were appended.
