I think it has to do with ejabberd testing that the domain is
resolvable _and_ reachable. I have been playing with ejabberd a bit,
but haven't gotten as far as getting strace to show something useful.
But this FAQ seems to be on-topic: http://www.ejabberd.im/subdomains -

Tomorrow night NZ-time I'll get a bit more time to trace this.
Hopefully I'll have an strace or some debug information that I can
post to the ejabberd development lists.
