Laptop appears to be polling the printerin on all DNS Suffixes every few hours

Operating System: Windows 10 x64

I have noticed recently on a port scan that my laptop might is polling the printer constantly.  Another curious thing is each of these requests goes to each of the dns suffixs I have which are required at my job (around 15, annoying I know).  Why is this happening? Could it be an "are you online?" type request and if so how could I turn that off?  I could block them but would rather find out what is happening to reduce the overhead and traffic on my network.

The printer is a Xerox WorkCentre 3215.

Example of my Top Domains for the last seven days.

Hello weaverswiggler,

I see no one has answered this so I would recommend contacting the 2nd Level department for more assistance: 1-800-821-2797.
