I'm not a DHCP expert but this seems like reasonable behaviour to me a DHCP
client broadcasts to find a DHCP server and broadcasts are limited to your
subnet, so your "not on the DHCP server subnet" clients are pleading "Can
somebody please allocate me an IP address" and nobody's listening to them.
Of course I could be completely wrong here, having setup two DHCP servers in
my life :-)
