try this :
$(function() {

    var dp = $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({
      showOn: "button",
      buttonImage: "images/calendar.gif",
      buttonImageOnly: true,
      dateFormat:'dd/mm/yy',      
    });

    function setToday() {
         dp.datepicker("setDate", "0");
    }

Work with a small timer : http://jsfiddle.net/5rpty/1/
jQuery(function($) {

    var dp = $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({
      showOn: "button",
      buttonImage: "images/calendar.gif",
      buttonImageOnly: true,
      dateFormat:'dd/mm/yy',      
    });

    function setToday() {
        setTimeout(function() {
             dp.datepicker("setDate", "0");
        }, 200); // try to decrease to 10ms
    } 
    setToday();

    $("form").on("reset", setToday);
