Regarding dhcp server behavior

Hi All,

I am facing some problem while trying DHCP server.  Following are the details.

Topology :
[cid:image003.jpg at 01D4E18A.A3FF6FF0]

Config file :
subnet netmask {
subnet netmask {

subnet netmask {

Command to start server :
sudo dhcpd -d enp0s8
Command to start Relay :
sudo dhcrelay -d -i enp0s3 -i enp0s8

So my server is running on enp0s8, but I am not able to see any packets coming to DHCP Server.

If I change my DHCPD Command with following, things started working properly.
sudo dhcpd -d enp0s8 enp0s3
sudo dhcpd -d enp0s3

What can be the reason behind such behavior?
