dhcpd for only one mac

I want to bring up a 2nd dhcp server to test some things.  I only want it to 
respond to one mac so that it does not interfere with the rest of the lan.

I realize the 'one mac' machine may get a response from the other dhcp server. 
with a little cable plugging unplugging I can isolate it.  I need to have the 
box running dhcpd on the LAN, and even though I could start/stop the service, 
that makes me nervous.  and its an extra hassle I would like to avoid.

subnet  netmask {
         hardware ethernet 00:60:08:0b:98:09 ;
         option host-name "testme" ;
         range ;
         option cz_ocs_daemonon "ssh";
