Dhcp Failover behind load balancers

I'm running DHCP failover on two servers behind a load balancer. I have
15 remote sites forwarding the dhcp requests to the virtual ip and they
get sent to only one of the two dhcp servers at a time.
For awhile it looked like if a request came to one server it would
forward it to the other.
Now for some reason I have a pool out of wack and the "peer holds all
I have two questions:
1) Do I need to send the dhcp traffic to both servers behind the load
vip 10.0.0.1 ---> goes to primary, secondary hot spare
vip 10.0.0.2 ---> goes to secondary, primary hot spare
ip address helper 10.0.0.1,10.0.0.2
2) I'm running the rpm package from Fedora Core3. I think I need to
upgrade to at least 3.0.3.
