Not related to your question, but should that machine really be
broadcasting to a whole b-class?
If you're not on the same subnet, bug your network admins to block
directed IP broadcasts. It'll also help prevent network abuse.

tcpdump will show you the packets even if they're blocked, because
tcpdump grabs them at the _ethernet_ level.
