[Snort-users] Question about rule numbers and Syslog

When you receive a syslog message from Snort it gives a rule number of
#:###:#. For example 1:255:8 is DNS Zone Transfer TCP.  I know that the
middle number is the sid for the rule.  My question is what are the other 2
numbers, where do they come from and are they in the acid database anywhere.
