relay issue

This feels like it should be a FAQ -- maybe my google juice is just low today:

I'm trying to serve multiple networks from a central dhcp server
(3.0.4). I've enabled bootpdhcprelay on the remote switch, and this
seems to be working. I'd like to assign static addresses to hosts in
the remote network, but all incoming requests seem to only match
against the local subnet.

Config, both hosts are on the same network:
subnet netmask {}
subnet netmask {}
host test0 {
  hardware ethernet 00:30:48:7e:2a:ec;
host test11 {
  hardware ethernet 00:30:48:7e:2f:c2;

But in the logs, hosts don't match the remote subnet:

Jan 16 13:37:08 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:30:48:7e:2a:ec via eth0:
network 10.10.1/24: no free leases
Jan 16 13:38:46 dhcpd: DHCPACK on to 00:30:48:7e:2f:c2 via eth0
