This doesn't make any sense genetically in snakes thus far. More likely the pied gene also gives a diffused look and it isn't the diffused gene directly.

Also likely is the pied gene popped up in diffused snakes and that's why so many have the look, the originals were all diffused homozygous or heterozygous for the gene.
