The description of a cluster above is not quite right - a cluster is two (or more) servers that both run the specified services and appear to the clients on the network as a single sever with a single IP address. Clustering of DHCP servers is supported but not normally recommended in Windows. Instead use multiple DHCP servers with a split scope.

Cluster is group of system so that the availability is their in case of one system failure.
DHCP cluster is have multiple DHCP servers will provide uninterrupter service for DHCP service incase of the failure of one server.
Suppose.

But in case of DHCP it is better to have DHCP SPLIT scope. you get high availabilty and load balancing..
