Using redundant dhcpds

    I'm getting ready to roll out a second dhcpd server with failover
    operational:
    http://www.madboa.com/geek/dhcp-failover/

    It's simple enough to set up but since I'm currently supporting
    multiple subnets from the one server I am not clear about the ip
    helper-address in IOS. Currently of course it's just the one line
    ip helper-address 1.2.3.4

    Should I add a second helper-address line to the config, or is it
    better to change the existing line to a broadcast address (1.2.3.255,
    assuming a /24)? Has anyone used this in production?
