Authoritative dummy pools

A dummy pool, without the range statement, can be configured and made authoritative. A dummy pool allows static-bind entries which do not have matching dynamic pools with network statements to be configured. By creating a dummy pool on a DHCP server, the support for DHCPinform packets will not be actively serving the client on this pool. No active leases or resource consumption will be sent to the DHCP server when this option is used.

Dummy pools help the DHCP server learn the network topology.
