Help with DHCP Failover server with multiple subnets

Hi all,

I need help. I should create DHCP Failover server which gives IP addresses for 2 subnets over the Cisco router. Cisco router is configured with ip-helper.
When I describe multiple subnets in non failover dhcpd.conf it starts, but in failover dhcpd.conf I don't know and can't find how to add two subnets. Can you help with dhcpd.conf file, how should it look like ? Thanks in advance.

My dhcpd.conf
ddns-update-style none;
one-lease-per-client true;
option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers;
option subnet-mask;
default-lease-time 300; max-lease-time 300;
failover peer "dhcp" {
port 519;
peer address;
peer port 520;
max-response-delay 60;
max-unacked-updates 10;
mclt 600;
split 128;
load balance max seconds 3;
include "/etc/dhcpd.master";

dhcpd.master file

subnet netmask {
pool {
failover peer "dhcp";
deny dynamic bootp clients;
option routers;
Where and how should I enter additional subnets ? Thanks.
