Offered but not ACKed IP in ARP table

We have two dhcp servers(with different pools of course) in same vlan, so
client get offers from both servers with different IPs.
for example  server 1 will offer and server 2 will offer to
same client, client choose, but sometimes appear in router
ARP table with client MAC(for two minutes, which is the time offered lease
is reserved).

I wonder if this is right, shouldn't client still use  instead of
using offered but not ACKed lease?
