one more question, how can I configure client in this subnet to use PXE?

I have two dhcp server with configure as:

    subnet netmask {
        option routers;
        option broadcast-address;
        pool {
            failover peer "failover";
            deny dynamic bootp clients;


I have bootp/PXE requirement in this subnet, I guess I should change deny dynamic bootp clients, am I right? 


May I ask the is failover related to the “ deny dynamic bootp clients”? or not? do I have to remove failover before allow bootp clients?


Any comments will be appreciated


Thanks in advance
