No, it is supposed to broadcast to the local network, exactly like 
x.x.x.255, with the difference that you don't have to know x.x.x so it 
is more portable. It is standardised and many programs recognize it, 
though [udpsend] is not the only one that doesn't (TouchOSC for example 
doesn't either).

It works with [netsend 1] on Windows, by the way.
