The word recombination already said it: recombination means the new combined structures of genes after reprodcution. In other words these antibodies are inherited.

V(D)J recombination occurs in developing B and T cells, not gametes, and therefore is not inherited by offspring.

This is incorrect. B and T cell receptors are not heritable.

I didn't know the thing with B and T cell. Thanks for clear it up.
