Yes, though note that broadcasts won't get through regardless of
rules.  This can be an issue with B-type name resolution.

It's not a broadcast, as you can see from the address.  And it would have
port numbers whether it's a broadcast or not.  The only time you don't get
port numbers for TCP or UDP is with a non-initial fragment, which should
be shown as such.  The above doesn't look like m0n0wall log output, at
least not verbatim.
