Well, it may not be malicious.  Modern Windows operating systems
send dynamic updates to register their name-to-address and address-
to-name mappings, by default.  If someone has configured a Windows
computer with a Primary DNS Suffix that's the same as your zone's
domain name, it'll try to update your zone.
