Benzodiazepenes and vertigo

How is it that benzodiazepenes like clonazepam, alprazolam, diazepam and 
others work to supress vertigo? I know this is true with MS, for 
example, and I assume it's true for many other conditions in which 
vertigo is an element. It seems clear to me to be more than just the 
action of alleviating anxiety (which potentially exacerbates vertigo). 
No one has yet told me _why_ or how this works.
