It does not do this by design.
In an "average" network a lot of windows XP machines are firewalled, misconfigured, ...
With lsclient in a loginscript you can find all these machines (even the firewalled ones) and know which ones are not properly configured. (even if they only come to the network once a month)
Actively scanning is intrusive and misses all devices turned off or firewalled at the moment of scanning.
