mhmm - that's a good hint -
The dhcp serves about 10 subnet's, in the particular 10.222.xxx.xxx net 
are 272 clients.
I turned down the secondary 12hours before to avoid that reclaiming 
problem - I thought
the default value for reclaming is 30 minutes so that shouldn't be a 
problem if I kill the secondary
12hours before.
Maybe I am wrong here
