no, snort should see it at the same time. The probable reason why snort didn't see
the portscan is that either your portscan threshold(sp) is too relaxed (and seen amount
of packets wasn't enough to consider it as portscan), or target/source host(s) were
in ignorehosts directive. (then snort's portscan plugin will not count'em at all).
