You appear to be partially correct. Querying the expert prodced the following response:

"CBL doesn't like being used for non-mail services. If you do use it, you're
supposed to link to your own info page in the message given to the user. Of
course most people ignore that, and use the dnsbl anyways. You can probably
get around the T&C by using xbl.spamhaus.org, which uses CBL data, and they
don't complain about how you use the dnsbl as far as i'm aware."

Many EFnet servers use xbl.spamhaus.org
