dhcpd - range parameter

Hi All,

I'm curious about what this community would think about this portion of a dhcpd.conf file:

subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
...
...other parameters/options...
...
range 192.168.1.3 192.168.1.253
range 172.16.0.2 172.16.0.50
}

I tested this and dhcpd did not barf when I put it in. It seems odd that it would allow a range outside of the subnet scope. Anyone use this technique or have experience with it?

Thanks
