You mean, you lost both (all) agents? In this case, yes you'd need to
resurrect the agents or move the networks to another available agent.

I am not sure I fully understand the failure mode you are trying to
address. The DHCP agents can work in an active-active configuration, so if
you have N agents assigned per network, all of them should be able to
address DHCP traffic. If this is not your experience, ie. one agent dies
and DHCP is no longer served on the network by any other agent, then there
might be some other problem going on.
