There are two things at play here:

If you are Sith, anyone who is found to be force sensitive will be sent to the Sith academy where most die. So even though Sith lords are free to have children, many will fail their training and thus not pass on their genes.

Jedi let force sensitive people choose to train as a Jedi, so many force sensitive people persist in the community and have offspring that can be recruited by the Jedi.

However, if this is really the way it works and force ability is genetic, you would expect over generations that the Sith would become more powerful (much greater selection pressure to be powerful in the force).

The balancing factor I believe is the large number of Jedi who have secret lovers and offspring.
