Why do I keep getting messages of the form Jun 21 12:00:00.000 client update denied in my log?

I keep getting log messages like the following. Why?

Jun 21 12:00:00.000 client update denied

Someone is trying to update your DNS data using the RFC2136 Dynamic Update
protocol. Windows 2000 machines have a habit of sending dynamic update

the update requests are coming from a Windows 2000 machine, see for
information about how to turn them off.
