Question about creating multiple scopes for multiple subnet.

We have a main site with a DHCP server, using the addressing scheme 10.1.1.X.  We also have a remote site connected by a dedicated T1.  I  have the LAN interface on the remote network setup with an IP address helper (it's a Cisco 2600).  The address of that LAN interface uses 10.4.1.X.  My question is, when the router forwards the request, will the DHCP server give it an address from the 10.4.1.X scope, assuming I have it created?  Also, can I just create a second scope, or do I need to make it a superscope?  Are there any advantages to using a superscope?
