[Dshield] Rise in version.bind scans?

Could these scans be related to the new NetworkManager package in Fedora 
Core 3 which has a dependency of Bind.  I had 3 separate Fedora boxes 
install bind this weekend when doing a package update with YUM, luckily 
it doesn't start the service.  I haven't been running any DNS services, 
so I'm not sure why all of the sudden it's required.  Maybe someone 
figured that a ton of new  Fedora hosts are potentially running  a 
default install of Bind now, so they started looking for them?
