I was actually just starting to look into this, I'm being blasted by 
the messages from the pix when it rejects a broadcast packet (I'm 
getting 43,000 log entries per day based on the firewalls rejecting

packets for their heartbeat, that adds up to a LOT of log entries when 
there are several dozen such clusters)

If what you need is for the PIX to handle but not log certain policy events,
use 'log disable' in your ACLs:

access-list acl_inside deny udp any eq 694 log disable

this actually will not work *when* is ip broadcast for
inside IP address. You will get zero ACL hit and 710005 message telling
that something aimed to inside intf is dropped. (tested on 6.3 with
udp/137-138 broadcasts)
