I've heard that one as well. I think the argument goes something along the lines that as you zoom in and out the elements move and this pumps air in and out of the camera, carrying dust with it.

Theoretically I suppose it could be true if you zoom in and out like a maniac but I'd have thought regularly swapping between primes would give dust far more chance to get into the camera.
