"Peer holds all free leases"

Hi , 
I have been observing certain issues with the failover set up i currently have. 

I have been hitting this particular issue when i set the Split Value to 255. 

Initially the Address Allocation for the clients works fine , and the primary and the failover server are always in sync. 

Now when i bring down the primary server , secondary is not able to allocate all of the IP addresses which are free in the pool, after a certain time , it logs the message  
"Peer holds all free leases". 

 And i am certain that there are certain IP addresses which are in free state and hence can be allocated , but are not allocated by the secondary server. 
Now when i bring up the primary server , the primary is able to allocate all of the remaining IP addresses. 

Can you let me know what may be causing this issue ?
