Ideally, broadcast address should be last address of defined subnet.But I don't see dhcp server enforces such restriction.A brodcast-address defined outside subnet in dhcpd.conf is accepted by dhcp server?

e.g. below configuration for broadcast-address is valid, BUT how:
subnet subnet { option broadcast-address; }

why dhcp server accepts broadcast address for subnet
