What is the reciprocal lattice structure of the zinc-blende structure?

zinc-blende structure is FCC; reciprocal lattice structure is BCC

But I though zinc-blende was not simply FCC but FCC with a basis. Or as I like to think of it , as two interlocking FCC lattices. So are you saying the reciprocal lattice is two interlocking BCC lattices?
