Well, even make check of R itself accesses the internet since many years, hence it would not be a big surprise for me that it happens with R CMD check for some packages as well - which unfrtunately is the case for many CRAN packages that sometimes fail my checks if the server to connect to is offline (or we are).

Which package are you talking about?
