The discrepancy between 192.18.0.0/15 (Zmap) and 198.18.0.0/15 (Nmap)
looks like it is caused by a typo in RFC 2544, and Nmap is correct in
this case. Look for "Errata ID: 423" on this page:
      http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=2544
In Section C.2.2:
      The network addresses 192.18.0.0 through 198.19.255.255 are have
      been assigned to the BMWG by the IANA for this purpose.
It should say:
      The network addresses 198.18.0.0 through 198.19.255.255 have
      been assigned to the BMWG by the IANA for this purpose.

I told the Zmap developers and they fixed it.
