My understanding is that you need to have some sort of failover setup -
so the secondary dhcp server only starts working (responding) if it
detects that the first has failed. It also needs to track all the leases
that the first has handed out, so it can avoid issuing duplicates.
I haven't looked at this in detail, though.
