When adding 
BrowseRelay 143.129.77.x 143.129.77.x
(first one being a host, second a broadcast address, different subnet)
I see the following in the cups error log:
Relaying from to (IPv4)
2130706xxx is the ip address of the host. BrowseRelay fails to work and seems impossible to fix.

The cups relay host has no own printers, but only relays to the other subnet.
Enable BrowseRelay from a host to a broadcast address.
FreeBSD could try to upgrade to CUPS 1.2.1 since that version is already available. However, I do not know if this bug is fixed in the newer version.
