microsoft dhcp servers - 2 on one subnet

I have two dhcp servers on my subnet for redundancy. One covers .20 - .79 and the other .80 to .139.

The first one is getting pretty full but the second one only has 12 devices in it.  Is there a way I can tell them to share the load more?

They are both domain controllers in the same site and the same subnet.

I don't think there is a way since DHCP messages are broadcast messages whatever DHCP picks these messages up first will lease the IP addresses to the client.
I agree with dariusq.  I would add that you have got two for *redundancy* in case one fails, not for any form of load balancing.  It's hardly a major system load after all to be worthy of balancing out...?!

I think load balancing anything is a good idea.  That's my opinion and you don't have to agree.
