By itself, there is nothing wrong with such an address.  But if its 
not in your local /etc/hosts file, I'd sure trace it down if you have 
to go around to every machine and do an ifconfig to find the machine 
useing it. And if its legit, add it to your /etc/hosts file to speed 
up the lookups.  If not, take the offending machine down and fix it.

You do have a firewall such as iptables setup to NAT and MASQERADE the 
users I assume.

Things grinding to a halt in mid-afternoon sounds like the pipe to the 
net is being filled up with something.  Running etherape on a machine 
that can see the whole local network might be educational.
