Different pools for dynamic and "static" leases

We've setup 2 pools in our subnet declarations. One pool is for dynamic clients and the other is for "static" clients that have host declarations with "fixed-address" options. We added the static pool since our servers are configured in a failover pair. 

subnet netmask {
   option routers... 
   # dynamic pool
   pool {
  # static pool
   pool {

Is there a way to stop dynamic hosts from getting addresses out of the static pool?
