[Dnsmasq-discuss] DHCP setup

I have dnsmasq running on 3 separate servers, each in different  
cities.  They are all connected via a secure tunnel. I was finding  
that DHCP request made in location A is being answered by the DHCP  
server in Location B.  Currently to avoid this issue, I am using:
as a way to stop server B handling requests that typically should be  
handled by server A.

Does someone know of a better way of handling this issue? Since what  
does happen from time to time, is that devices normally associated  
with Location A do visit  Location B, and then will a DHCP reply from  
the DHCP server in location A.

Is there a way to use the IP of the local router to accept DHCP  
request, if the request comes from a router from a different location,  
then ignore that request?  this would be a cleaner solution.

Thank you
