Actually that's not entirely true in 10.x.y.x a .0 address is a
perfectly valid IP address depending on the netmask. If it was a /24
netmask it would be invalid but it would be a network address, not a
braodcast address. The broadcast address for /24 is .255 , which is is
also a valid IP address if the netmask is less than 24.
