    Can you setup the iptables rules on the other machines to log
    broadcasts from your "suspect" server and see if they see it coming in
    at the same time too? I would guess that your first server has Samba
    running and sending SMB broadcasts to the network, and the iptables is
    seeing the traffic. Does the iptables log keep the MAC address? Might
    help you track it down.
