Description (partial)

Some clients set the BROADCAST flag on the DHCP Discover packet. This requires the DHCP server to reply with a broadcast.
In that case and if you are not using DHCP snooping on the 5760/3850, then the controller will block the return traffic unless you enable "wireless broadcast" which enables broadcast globally (and is thus not always desirable)

Seen on 3.3.2 IOS-XE
