DHCP-Server issues reserved ip address to any device?

 I have created the following entry in the configuration file:

host hpl320 
 hardware ethernet 00:14:38:9A:62:73;
 fixed-address hp1320.in-put.de;

When this device isn't active and the ip address is free, the dhcp server
might assign the address to any other device, which is asking for an ip

Is it possible to generally reserve an ip address for a advice and therefore
prohibit the assign to any other device?

Thanks for any hint or advice,
