That's more or less the standard setup.

However, you can make like easy for yourself by having ONLY the 
failover declaration in the main dhcpd.conf file and an include 
statement to include the rest of the config which is common between 
both partners. You can then keep both copies in sync much more easily 
using whatever tools your are happy with (scp, rsync, whatever).
