Could it be that the number of rays is too few?

there is only one place you need to adjust that - in your render globals. and if you happen to messed with the settings anywhere else, you should know where you played with it - and higher the rays as well. according to your scene, 10 ray might be just enough - but go higher and set them to 12, especially if you use refraction as well

That is the refraction with inadequate value of refraction limit in Material>Raytrace options or Refraction (rays) in Raytracing section of Render Globals. It is not reflection's responsible.

Hope you understand.
