Yes. B'casted packets will be duplicated and routed to all helper addresses.

Yes, if you want. Some network has so complicated helper hierarchies that spanning-tree is needed to not duplicate paths. Apparently IOS can do that.

Hi James


Just to add to Paolo's points. Rather than think of active and backup DHCP servers just think of both DHCP servers being active. You can split the scope across your 2 DHCP servers so one serves out the first half of the scope and the other serves out the second half of the scope.
