You know how accounting works, right?

A reply sent back to the NAS says "I received this, all is good".

No reply sent back tells the NAS "it didn't get through, send it

So by not responding, the NAS will keep re-sending the packet, *until*
you respond.

Likely with do_not_respond. But it's not a good idea.
