[UFO Chicago] dhcp noob question

I have kind of a noob question about redundant DHCP servers.
On my home LAN I have "static" DHCP IPs assigned to pretty much anything
(IP addresses are all tied to MAC addresses). I also have a small pool of
dynamic IPs for guests or whatever. This is all done on an Ubuntu box
running dhcp3 (ISC DHCP server).
Is there any reason I can't set this up on a second server? The second
would have a different "pool" for dynamics, but the same list of static
DHCP assignments. I would think that PCs would accept an assignment from
whichever server responded first. Any downfalls that I'm missing? I
looked into the DHCP redundancy feature, but that seems mainly to
synchronize dynamic assignments.
