I think I would use a separate dhcp server in the dmz -- setting up a dhcp
server to dish out ip's in a range that it's not even participating in would
be ugly. Why allow such traffic across the dmz boundary?

And btw why do you need DHCP in your DMZ? Aren't the servers using static
IP's? If not, how do you reach them from the other zones?
