An alert is not a notification. It's just a log entry that something  
'interesting' has happened with that service. It may be the first  
check after restart/reload, a hard state change, a volatile change or  
a stalking change.

I'd hazard a guess that stalking is enabled. http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/stalking.html
