oddness from getgrnam()

I was testing a program and to see how it handled an invalid group I did:

gr = getgrnam("bob");

Now obviously this failed.  However the string from perror() states:

"Could not find file or directory"

Why is this?  Seems like a counter intuitive error.

(Yes I know UNIX is sometimes like that, but this one is odd)
