The only thing I can think of is that maybe there are a lot of XP installs (real and/or virtual) that are only occasionally connected to the Internet.

However I'm not sure why they'd be connected one month and not the next.

There were some updates for:
  • XP earlier this year, but I haven't heard of any recently
  • Earlier versions of Office, so maybe those machines were turned on to get those

I occasionally connect my XP machines (real and virtual) to get software updates (especially AV).

I have one possible explanation....
About the time that Win-Vista and Seven came out, most PC makers were using the cheap (bad) Chinese capacitors in their PSU's and motherboards. Many of those PC's have since DIED!
While the older XP PC's had better quality components in them and they are still alive and well.

Just a thought!
