The server doesn't think so, it believes the request came via eth3.

No, the host statement will not be applied in this case because the 
fixed-address is not valid for the subnet the server believes the

Go back and check the cabling - make sure you really do have the 
networks connected as you describe, and the client is connected to 
the right one.
