Worker other than the master is listening to the socket

I understand it is the master process listen to the binding socket since
that's what I see from the netstat output in most time:
tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN  
   12990/nginx: master

while sometimes I found the worker process also doing the same thing:
tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN  
   12987/nginx: worker

So is this as expected or the nginx was just running into a bad state?
