More likely your class matching isn't working as you'd expected. I 
can't comment since we haven't seen your config. Most likely the 
client is matching class "rule1".

PS - you could help yourself by making your config easier to read 
with appropriate indentation, eg :

subnet ....
   option ....
   pool {
     option time-offset -12345;
     option netbios-name-servers;
     option time-servers,;
     option host-name";
     allow members of "rule1";
