I found that APF is an iptables based firewall project and if multicast isn't allowed out it won't work assuming that you are sending from your backend server.
Where are you sending the command from?
Where are you sending the ping command from?
What do you expect to receive the command (if the answer is "my frontends" please specify how many)?
What is BFD? (Quick google search didn't come up with anything appropriate)
Are you sure that mythtvosd is multicast aware? The only place that I have found so far that says anything about multicast and mythtvosd is on the voip-info wiki page (http://voip-info.org/wiki/view/Asterisk+tips+MythTV+integration). I haven't found anything that mentions that mythtvosd is multicast aware. (I took a look through the mythtvosd README and a VERY quick search through the source code of mythtvosd).
Have you tried send the mythtvosd command to the master backend?
The other way is to hard code a command for each frontend.
