Is it on a different network segment separated by ACL or a Firewall?

Even though it is on a different segment, I should still see it in the ARP table, shouldn't I?

ARP is a layer-2 protocol.  If you ping an address that's on a different subnet you won't see the MAC address of the device.  You'll only see MAC addresses of devices on your layer-2 segment.
