    This is simply an artifact of the way the server builds lists of 
available addresses. In general, once your server has been running for 
a while, you will get addresses from randomly from all three ranges.
However, in a "clean start" with no lease database, the addresses are
pushed onto the head of the list as the range statements are processes.

    There is no way I know of to tell the server to "allocate this range
until all of the addresses are in use; then use range 2; etc".
