Yeah, but the original post said something along the lines of
"any packets to or from my network to a broadcast address". It's not the
"to" part of that which is a problem, but the "from" - as you know, x.y.z.3
can be a host or a broadcast address (if it's a /30 mask).
In other words, I can't prevent my customers from sending packets to
a broadcast address, esp. on a subnet smaller than /24. You might be
able to block outgoing packets for destination x.y.z.255, but if you've got
a mask >/24 (/23, etc..), couldn't .255 be a valid host address?
Just being picky, I suppose....

what defines a "broadcast" address really depends on the subnet mask?
"no ip directed-broadcast"
