Yes, the server will take care of matching a clients network location 
with the appropriate subnet mask. This happens regardless of whether 
the client is one a directly connected network, or a remote network 
serviced via a relay agent.

This does assume that the two network cards are connected to 
different networks, if you connect the two cards to the same physical 
network (ie create a shared subnet) then things are different and 
need a little more work.
