    Everything in my last post is correct, except for the last part.

    Did some research and apparently the clients "request" is always a broadcast.

    However if there are several dhcp servers (some on different subnets) and the the local router is acting as a dhcp relay, (the only way to get the broadcast to cross the router), it will use unicast to reach the other dhcp server(s).

    Ok, Ill shut up now before I confuse everyone.
