polynomial has a root mod p, or 0 if no such p exists."

a(n), when not 0, appears to be the largest prime divisor of n,
are there any counter-examples to this observation ?
(my own investigation didn't find any out to n = 10,000)
if not, are there any number theorists that can shed any light on
this curious phenomenon ?
thanks,
Peter Lawrence.
