Does this mean ISC DHCP server supports RFC 4361 format and when the
client send the Option 61 with RFC 2132 format the Server supports the
option ??
if it so what happens in the scenario of client sending the option 61 in
RFC 4361 format and the server supports only RFC 2132 ??

	Nothing is ever perfectly safe, but the RFC4361 client
identifier format is backwards-compatible with RFC2132, so it would take
a very, very broken implementation to choke on it.
