Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Query on DHCP transactions

Before hubbing out and firing up Wireshark, I got curious about something while watching a log of DHCP transactions between a DHCP server and client: Is it normal after the client has already obtained an address, to see continuous attempts by the DHCP server to send packets to on the DHCP client if the DHCP client is no longer asking for an address in a switched network?
