Is this how pool balancing functions?

I have read through many threads about load balancing process but still
need some clarification. I am currently running DHCP 3.4 in a load
balancing scenario. I have several other pools as well and all of them
have similar messages.

backup 432 lts -42

According to all the of documentation that I have read there should be
two events that occur during a POOL balance, "single-spaced pool"
request and the "two-spaced pool" response. I have many "single-spaced
pool" requests in my logs but no "two-spaced" to indicate that a
rebalance occurred. Is this because the threshold of Free + Backup / 10
has not been reached?
I also noticed 81 expired ip's in my dhcpd.leases file. At what point
does dhcpd reclaim those addresses? After restarting dhcpd the expired
leases were gone, but I don't want to restart dhcpd every time I get a
build up of expired leases. Is there a formula that dhcp uses to reclaim
