Static Allocation Not Working

Hey All,
Sort of an easy issue I’m sure but I’m getting annoyed and could use  
the help. I searched the archives and this must have been covered but  
I couldn’t find it.

Working on Static Allocations for a couple of machines on several  
subnets. I’m running DHCP Server V3.0.1 in a failover setup.

In the dhcpd.master file on each server here’s the config the isn’t  
working: (I've tried a couple of slightly different version of this  
as go)

subnet netmask {
   option subnet-mask;
   option broadcast-address;
   option routers;
         pool {
         failover peer "dhcp-failover";
         deny dynamic bootp clients;
host {
   hardware ethernet 00:0a:82:d3:49:22;
host {
   hardware ethernet 00:34:3f:13:4f:eb;

I’ve stopped the service and deleted all the leases for each MAC  
address and restarted the service but the machines keep on grabbing  
an address from the pool. I’m not getting any info from the log’s  
that I can find, Do I need to add an option statement in the file?

What easy thing I’m I missing?
