Failover peer ignores some requests

we are running version 3.0.3 on a RHEL3 failover pair, using one of Jason
Vas Dias's RPMs: dhcp-3.0.3-3_EL3. We are using Cisco routers and their
relay agents. All interfaces are configured with (at least) two ip
helper-addresses, i.e. those of the two failover peers.
Today I noticed something strange. One peer keeps logging this every few
May 8 14:05:03 noc2 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:16:46:89:c6:27 via
184.108.40.206: peer holds all free leases
The last "pool" line for this subnet in the log reads:
May 8 13:50:06 noc2 dhcpd: pool 88af2f0 134.95.128/24 total 27 free 5
backup 0 lts 2
Even that is unclear to me. Doesn't "free 5" mean that *this* peer has 5
free leases? Anyway, what's even more baffling is the behavior of the other
peer. It doesn't show any DHCPDISCOVER messages anymore. Instead it keeps
May 8 13:54:19 lvr13 dhcpd: pool 89be580 134.95.128/24 total 27 free 4
backup 1 lts -1
The rate is about the same as above. I've checked with ethereal that this
peer *does* get the DHCPDISCOVERs, it just seems to ignore them!? Any idea
what's going on there??
