[OpenAFS] AFS clients and IP address

Whilst investigating a network problem, one of our network gurus noticed
that our AFS client systems are sending packets to IP address (I confirmed this by using tcpdump).  Issuing the command:

fs getserverprefs -numeric | grep 192

gave the reply:                                       40006

Please would someone explain what is happening here; is it related to
dynroot ?  I expect that it is a FAQ.
