DTD and Validation

I'm using JDOM as my parser (using the default Xerces parser as the driver), and even when I have validation turn off, it still seems to be performing validation. There is a DTD reference in each XML request I process, and it always seem to access it even if I have validation turned off. Any ideas as to why or how I can get it to completely bypass the DTD without removing the DTD reference from the XML string?
