The non-resolution of 255.255.255.255 on Solaris 10 is a known Solaris 
bug. It's fixed in Patch 125553-03, which itself was obsoleted by 
127127-11. For older Solaris releases the common workaround was to 
ensure DNS for hosts in /etc/nsswitch.conf, for Solaris 10 I think the 
patch is mandatory to resolve the problem.

There were several BZ issues, e.g.

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=20063

and others.

Regards,

Rainer
