i think you mean TC=1.

this supposed anti-ddos behaviour is, i heard from somewhere, patented. at 
least, there's a variant where the first UDP query get TC=1 and only after the 
client demonstrates that they heard your TC=1 and properly followed up with a 
TCP transaction, is UDP answered normally. that variant is, i think, patented.
