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 10.10.10.0 subnet 255.255.255.0 { option broadcast-address 20.20.20.20; }

why dhcp server accepts broadcast address 20.20.20.20 for subnet 10.10.10.0/24?
