Quoting the "Backup Files" node of the emacs manual:
      For files managed by a version control system (*note Version
    Control::), the variable `vc-make-backup-files' determines whether to
    make backup files.  By default it is `nil', since backup files are
    redundant when you store all the previous versions in a version
    control system.  *Note General VC Options::.
