Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Or, more generally, is it required to specify the broadcast address that a client should use when a DHCP server is assigning an address?

Clients default to using the highest address in the subnet if a broadcast address is not specified.

Remember to keep that address out of the dhcp pool.
