Deprecated does not mean obsolete. A deprecated object should still work, but you are encouraged to use its replacement (if any). In this case, ifInNUcastPkts is replaced with ifInMulticastPkts and ifInBroadcastPkts from the IF-MIB. This object were deprecated by the IETF most likely because it did not distinguish between broadcast and multicast frames.
