syslog is the default behaviour and is probably right for most sites in
normal operation. For debugging you can specify the -d flag and debug
goes to standard error. To redirect this use

 dhcpd -d 2> file

man dhcpd (and search for debug) :

     To have dhcpd log to the standard error descriptor,  specify
     the  -d flag.
