You can get access to the shell and edit the daemon 
configuration files yourself, but based on similar tactics 
for other areas of Junos (including things like Cron) that 
some operators have done, it is with reasonable reliability 
that any custom changes will not persist through software 

So either you add this to the to-do list each time you 
upgrade code, or get Juniper to fix it natively (since it is 
now fixed in FreeBSD).

In fairness, I haven't tried to muck about with the Junos 
FreeBSD shell to do this, partly for the reasons above, 
mostly because my life is already interesting enough :-). If 
someone else has and can provide a different perspective, 
please do.
