"second" /21 block, so .16.1 is the first address of server 2.
Looking at it from the 'each server role gets its own /21' POV,
- the first /21 is unused
- each server is leaving the first /23 unused. For example, server 2
uses .18 to .23 but leaves .16.1 to .17.255 unused

Yes, there are several ways to skin this cat, at the moment I'm keen
on hearing from Wad what the original plan was. I don't tihnk anyone
has deployed multi-server setups, so we can move this stuff around as
we see fit.
One of the possibilities is to shift all servers >1 a few netblocks
and grab 172.18.10.1/19 for "server 1" to manage (in the "assign dhcp
leases and route" sense). This has 8190 addresses - hang a big chunk
of that off eth1 and you can safely wire up a school with many APs and
to serve a large population of XOs.
