You'll have to do something like:

target[serial0]: ifInUcastPkts#s0&ifOutUcastPkts#s0:public at router.ip.address
		     ifInNUcastPkts#s0&ifOutNUcastPkts#s0:public at router.ip.address

This is because [broad|multi]casts and unicasts are counted separately.
Note that unless you have multicast forwarding turned on, the Non-Unicasts
will probably not be forwarded by the router, just received and processed by
the router - things like ARP, routing protocols, time sync...
