Zeus with strange referrer.

Every so often I get hit by Zeus (e.g Zeus 18585 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32), I know roughly what Zeus does but for some reason it seems to provide a bogus refererrer from another sites robots.txt,
i.e the referrer will be www.domain.com/robots.txt where domain.com is a site that i've never heard of.

Even stranger when I look domain.com doesn't even have a robots.txt.

Anyone know why it does this, is it standard behaviour or are these misconfigured?
