please confirm - possible bug in isc-dhcpd?

Dear mailing list,


When configuring failover and using FQDN instead of ip address, 
isc-dhcpd says failover peer can't find address. It does however start 
and will not, of course, work properly.

The behaviour is that the very first client might get address but none 
after that one - causing alot of confusion.

The workaround - use ip addresses in dhcpd.conf when configuring 
failover peer.

Can anyone confirm this behaviour? Is it a bug? The man page shows an 
example where FQDNs are being used....

If it is a bug, where do I report it?
