How to run in failover but NOT load balancing?

set split to 0 or 255 to turn off load balancing.
but be aware (from my experiences):
- both servers will still log the dora process, and keep leases in
- on true failover (when primary is down) some functionality is
unavailable (like to add new pools)

Subject: How to run in failover but NOT load balancing?
I think I've misunderstood something in setting up DHCP 3.1.0. I have
two servers and I want them to run in failover mode, not load-balancing,
with one server providing service to all dhcp requests and the other
acting as a standby. I have both listed in the router's configuration
(ip helper-address). Is this supported under the failover protocol
implemenation? Or is the only way to run two servers to have them load
balance? I'd like to run in the active-standy mode to simplify
troubleshooting so I don't have to figure out which server has acted on
a client's request. Initially I thought I could do this with the
"split" statement but everything I've read tells me I should keep the
split value at 128 which implies balancing between the two servers.
