They don't have 'no priority' -- they have the default priority which is
probably [#C].  You can set the default using variables.

See:
org-default-priority
   The default priority of TODO items.
org-highest-priority
   The highest priority of TODO items.  A character like ?A, ?B etc.
org-lowest-priority
   The lowest priority of TODO items.  A character like ?A, ?B etc.

You're free to change the default to Z or something as long as you also 
set org-lowest-priority appropriately.

Regards,
Bernt
