We've seen this type of behavior as well, and on larger networks than
/24's. On one /18 that we have, someone was sending to xx.xx.255.255,
and it was heading to the first /23 that was allocated out of that
block. The customer that was lucky enough to be the recipient
eventually had to explicitly deny the 255.255 address because no ip
directed-broadcast didn't stop it.
