RPC Timeout Errors From Ghost Machines

FBSD 10.3-STABLE system providing NFS server services to a non-routable
LAN ...

I am seeing errors of the "RPC: Portmapper failure: RPC Timed out" variety.

What's weird is that they are associated with machines that are not currently
powered on.  When I do turn them on, they happily mount the shared filesystems,
so I know the server works.

So ... any idea why I am seeing these messages after the machines shut down?
