You should see this for the first transmitted packet for *every*
attempted net boot.

No, this is normal procedure.  If there's a problem, it is
elsewhere.  Note that the broadcast bit in the first octet of
the ethernet address is set to 1.  This makes the address a
group broadcast (I don't have the proper name for that here),
recognised by the on-chip boot-code as part of the net boot
process.
