I would point you at the streaming archive, but I'm not sure where they went.  Perhaps they can post them to Youtube?

Anyways, the alternate set of IPs responding is actually increasing over time:

Many CPE devices will perform NAT on udp/53 packets received on their WAN interface and forward them to their configured DNS server.  Some will just take the source IP and copy it into the packet.  Because it comes in on their WAN interface, it will instead of copying the inside NAT address just copy my source IP from the weekly scan and use that.  Since it's on the outside, it doesn't copy it's outside IP and put that in, it copies mine.
