Is this behavior is ok ??? Why second server is not alloting new Ip to client, when it is sending DHCP broadcast request??

Strictly speaking this is not a Wireshark question. RFC 2131 has the details on page 13, but roughly, the second DHCP server behaves properly when it reacts to DHCP Discovery but not to DHCP Request. And it doesn't matter that the Request is sent to a broadcast address - the purpose of sending the Request to a broadcast address is to inform those DHCP servers whose Offer the client hasn't accepted that they may cancel the reservation.
