If have tested some things with samba and DHCP failover. 
DHCP Failover wil i got working, was with samba with BIND9_FLATFILE database backend,
aka, i didnt get it to work with Bind9_DLZ. (yet)

i have a basic setup for a DHCP on samba, found here. ( this is for 1 server, tested with samba 4.1.x Bind9_DLZ )
Base on debian Wheezy. 

(the flatfile setup)
This site was used. 

I didnt have the time yet to try a dhcp failover with bind9_dlz setup. 
but it should be possible imo. 

and  ;-) if you get it to work, wel.. please share ;-)
