This transform attempts a zone transfer (AXFR) on the Domain . You can read more on a zone transfer at Wikipedia . If possible it extracts the Cnames and A records from the zone as DNS Name . If a zone transfer is possible then all the DNS names associated with the domain is returned, and there is no need to brute force it anymore. The results of a succcessful zone transfer normally results in a very happy analyst as resolving these DNS names to IPv4 Address gives a very good indication of the network location of the target.
