It's also worth bearing in mind that the address shown in the "via"
phrase of the log message for DHCPDISCOVER is just arbitrarily
selected by the gateway/relay from the addresses configured on the
interface connected to the shared network. It may be the "primary"
address, or the one first in sort order, according to the
implementation. In particular, the example "via 126.96.36.199" doesn't
indicate anything which should prevent a DHCPOFFER from carrying an
address from the other subnet.
