I suspect that may be the problem - the DHCP server not looking at 
the known/unknown pool options and so the clients get either the 
subnet or globally defined option.

I suspect that if you configure the walled garden dns servers as the 
subnet option then you'll see clients in the known pool getting bad 
dns servers in response to dhcp informs. Might be worth a try and see 
what happens.
