Not sure what you mean.  The MACs will probably be assigned to the 
domU-internal interfaces, not to any dom0 interface.

Try "brctl showmacs" on the domUs's bridge.  That should get you the 
port(s) of the MACs that you're seeing.  (I'd expect all those MACs to 
be non-local.)

Iptables rules can handle that.  I find vif-bridge's handle_iptable 
rules to be too generous, so I use a modified script and code my own
