for i in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/*/log_martians ; do

And you are done :).

I believe you have the problem because some packets go out to one
interface, and comes back to the other, a common thing to asymetric
routing. I doubt you have hundred of thousounds routes , so you must
use some complicated setup for your load balancing to get those
errors.
