The normal visitor doesn't connect to a variety of ports and do zone
transfers.  This activity is surely what brought him above the noise

Maybe, maybe not - if you are using one of the many internet based domain
query tools, then at some point it may be doing a dig -axfr...   Is it any

way of 'hiding' yourself ?
Neither method is malicious in itself.
