A method for data broadcast over a network includes receiving at a virtual bridge a data packet to be flooded over the network, and passing the data packet from the virtual bridge to a multicast-capable router, along with a broadcast indication. Responsive to the broadcast indication, the router determines a group of destination addresses to which the packet should be multicast, and creates copies of the packet for transmission over the network to the destination addresses in the group.
