The reservation isn't a part of the pool, so it doesn't inherit pool 
options.  If you put the options in the subnet block instead of the 
pool block, they will be inherited by all hosts that are assigned 
addresses in that subnet:

subnet netmask {
	default-lease-time 691200;
	option routers;
	option domain-name-servers;
	option domain-name      "";
	option netbios-name-servers,;
	option netbios-node-type        8;

	pool {
                        deny dynamic bootp clients;
                        failover peer "failover" ;
                        range ;
                        range ;
                        range ;
