On the contrary; it is absolutely normal behavior for any computer that uses
TCP/IP services as part of the core OS. The majority of new Macs being sold
are being connected to the Internet, and Apple has taken full advantage of
this fact in the feature set of the Mac OS. If the Mac is set to use a
network time server, check for software updates, or do any of a myriad of
other built-in Internet-based activities, then it will try to establish a
connection. That's exactly why the Remote Access setup has the option to
force a manual connection.
