Why won't SonicWALL TZ170 assign a static DHCP lease?

I've configured 10 static DHCP leases matched to the 10 mac addresses found in my office environment.  All are enabled, yet the DHCP server doesn't seem to honor them - it leases an IP from the dynamic scope to all of these NICs.  

When you view the list of leases in the bottom window, it doesn't show any of them; it only shows the leases assigned to MAC addresses not covered by my list of static assignments.  

The configuration options for DHCP are very basic and I don't see what I could possibly be missing here.  There are no other DHCP servers active on the subnet.  I've tried deleting all the leases on the sonicwall and doing a /release /renew on clients (and reboots) and that doesn't cut it either.  Lease times have been allowed to naturally expire.  

I have "enable conflict detection" checked, but I can't see how that would be relevant?  

This isn't a critical issue but I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction as it would certainly help!
