mdns-scan is a tool for scanning for mDNS/DNS-SD services published
on the local network.
It works by issuing a mDNS PTR query to the special RR
_services._dns-sd._udp.local for retrieving a list of all currently
registered services on the local link.
mDNS/DNS-SD is part of Apple's Zeroconf strategy (a.k.a. Bonjour).
The avahi-daemon package is an implementation of mDNS/DNS-SD.
