DMARC records

I’ve been working on optimizing the outgoing mail from my virtual server. This server has several virtual domains which send and receive mail as well. I’ve been using the mail-tester.com service to check configurations, and I seem to be able to get 9 or 10 out of 10 on all my sites. However, there’s a warning that comes up about the DMARC record. The mail-tester advice is:

You do not have a DMARC record A DMARC policy allows a sender to indicate that their emails are protected by SPF and/or DKIM, and give instruction if neither of those authentication methods passes. Please be sure you have a DKIM and SPF set before using DMARC. You do not have a DMARC record, please add the following one to your domain _dmarc.lists.example.net

v=DMARC1; p=none

and my bind entry is:

_dmarc.lists.example.net. IN TXT « v=DMARC1;p=none »

Finally, a dmarcian.com inspection does show a record matching what I put in bind. Does this look correct, or is there some nuance that I’m missing and mail-tester.com isn’t explaining in a way that I see? Thanks!

Edit: To remove the obvious noob mistake question…no my bind entry does not actually say example.net, it’s the actual name of the server used in the Errors-To, Sender, and Return-Path headers in the emails.
