Take a look at "man ng_one2many":
The one2many provides a simple mechanism for routing packets over
links in a one-to-many (and in the reverse direction, many-to-one)
ion. There is a single hook named one, and multiple hooks named
many1, etc. Packets received on any of the many hooks are
the one hook. Packets received on the one hook are forwarded out
more of the many hooks; which hook(s) is determined by the node's
ured transmit algorithm. Packets are not altered in any way.
It's got some caveats...
