access port on switch

By rajshekar455 ·

Host1 ----> (1/0) CiscoSW1 (1/1) ------> Host2
(eth1) Vlan4 Vlan4 (eth1)
AccessPort AccessPort

CiscoSW1 :
Port 1/0 and 1/1 configured as access ports with vlan 4

"""did not mention in the diagram but there are 10 different hosts (HOST3 to HOST 12) which are in different vlans(20-29) are connected to switch.""""

All these ports are access ports on switch.

HOST1 and HOST2 :
Host1(eth1) : ip address (vlan unaware port)
Host2(eth1) : ip address (vlan unaware port)

Below is my doubt :

1. Host1 is sending untagged packet to Host2 via CiscoSwitch(Access Port) .
2. Siwtch does not find the Destination Mac address entry in "MAC TABLE" so
it has to broadcast.
3. My doubt is , broadcast packet goes only to HOST2 or it goes to all HOSTS
connected to switch.
Can anyone explain me briefly.
