That doesn't mean anything. The three lists you mention are aggregated lists 
by various criteria. For instance that IP might have been on SORBS because 
it's dynamic. And it will stay there no matter if the mail coming from there 
is spam or ham. CBL doesn't include dynamic IP space because it is dynamic 
IP space.
