The short answer is yes.

If you run dhcpd without specifying an interface it will listen on all 
interfaces, so you should include subnet declarations for all local 
interfaces. If there are more than one ip address on an interface then 
you should configure it as a shared-network.

For example, in one of your earlier posts there was an error about no 
declaration for eth0.
