Based on the RFC 791 , I read the flags as:

  • MF set: this packet contains a fragment,
  • DF set: this packet cannot be split into (smaller) fragments.

The combination makes it: this packet contains a fragment which in turn may not be split into smaller fragments.
So while unusual, it is allowed.
