Has anyone ever got a significant amount of traffic from a long tail keyword on Bing? I'm seeing over 3000 organic referrals for a single longer tail keyword that normally would get maybe 3-4 a day.

They are coming from all legit IP's, I figure it's some sort of Bing suggestion or something?

It could be Bing suggest, but that would suggest that the keyphrase already had a significant number of searches.

It could also be as simple as folks trying to find the answer to a daily crossword puzzle clue. (Yes, it does happen.)
