Google XML Sitemaps plugin robot.txt file

I'm using Google XML Sitemaps plugin in and it seems like it failed at the first Google indexing of the site. In Google's site configuration panel where you can test robots.txt, it say the text in that file is:

User-agent: * Disallow:
Sitemap: http://www.altcarehea...­

Shouldn't that file say "allow?" If it's a dynamically generated file, where is it located in WP? Should I change it?

Got a response on this from, so I'll pass it along for the edification of our membership.

The robot.txt file does not have a "/" after the word Disallow:, so it is good to go. It is not blocking search engines. If you use Google XML Sitemaps plugin, the robot. txt file is generated dynamically by the WP functions.php file, so you won't see it in the root of your directory. But it's there!
