The error means just what it says! There is no file named “robots.txt” in folder www

Something (may be a web crawler?) has attempted to read that file and the error created and logged in Apache’s error log file. Check in Apache’s access log file for a matching access to file “robots.txt” should provide an indication what attempted to access that file.

A robots.txt if it exists prevents crawler logging your site pages. If one does not exits it assumes you wish your site searched and indexed.
