Pools in the subnets they refer to is a good habit in any case, and may 
even be mandatory in 4.x.

Meanwhile a possibility I haven't seen mentioned yet is that because 
your second pool is so small if you have any DHCP reservations in it, or 
there are static hosts in the range that answer ICMP, it will adversely 
affect the ability of the servers to balance.
