Nmap minor suggestion: "Initiating Parallel DNS resolution of XYZ hosts" is misleading #1918
According to the Nmap documentation:
However when scanning a large range of XYZ total hosts, with many dead ones, Nmap still writes (in verbose mode):
It looks like it will perform a DNS resolution for all hosts, whereas it will only do it for online ones.
So I suggest adapting this message to show the real number of hosts that will be DNS resolved :)
