Well, just to clarify a bit, the RST packets aren't the ones you are
getting. You are apparently getting port-scanned. The message just
says it won't reply by an RST packet to a SYN going to a closed port
more than 200 times per second.

I would suggest ignoring all SYN packets going to closed ports.
Haven't yet used pf though, so I can't say how exactly to do this.
