In the test pool you need to have "allow members of "test-class"; and
in the production pool you need to have "deny members of "test-class";

Alternatively, if they're in the same pools you need to define the
production values in a less-specific scope (maybe in the subnet or
global scope rather than in the pool) so that the class-based scope for
your test clients gets picked up.
