Yes. Although not exactly because I use a pool containing only one IP 
because dhcpd 4.1.1P1 does not support host statement based on option82. 
Reference: http://www.miquels.cistron.nl/isc-dhcpd/

Great! Can you provide more information about "doesn't get handled like 
a dynamic lease" ? I am asking mainly because I do use host host {} but 
a 'fake' pool.

Thanks Glen
