I get these messages all the time on my authoritative name servers
(running rbldnsd or BIND) from multiple clients, e.g.:

Apr  9 22:01:49 khan kernel: UDP: short packet: From 60/52 to 213.92.xxx.yyy:53

This has been happening forever AFAIR, and I think is proportional to
the rate of received queries.
