slave records beginning with db-

I've noticed zonefile records beginning with "db-" among the zonefiles 
in one of my slave servers.  Not that many of them, but over 20.

I restarted a slave server today and noticed a new one was created.

Exmaination shows that they're for what appear to be random domains, and 
there is also a complete transferred file for that domain.

The slave nameserver appears to work, but I can't help but be curious.

I tried a lookup in google, but that didn't work because it ignores the 
"-" and finds all occurrences of db, which is a lot.

I tried a lookup of the list archives and didnt' find anything.

Can someone explain?
