[PEN-TEST] Layer 3 Sniffing

I have been doing some research on sniffing switched networks and I have
a quick question that has presented itself.

Now that the new switches are using Layer 3 switching technology with
ABC (Automatic Broadcast Control) how are you able to forward your
broadcast packet to the other clients to request the traffic you want to
sniff if the switch is stopping the broadcast and answering the request
itself?

Or I am missing something here?

Thanks,

Justin Funke
