[CentOS] DHCP failover ... Some questions.

I plan to reorganise our IP management and I'd like to implement a slave
DHCP server. Right now we assign IP addresses based on the
ethernetadress of a client 1:1.

The tutorial here [1] is simple and looks like the thing I need.

I do have a lot of subnetworks and my cisco router has an DHCP helper
address set. I know I'll have to add the second dhcp-server address.

My questions now is:

Dose the dhcp-slave syncs the dhcp data from the master?

Or do I have to copy the data to the master AND slave?

Any other sugesstions or comments?

Thanks and best regards,
