next-server in dhclient.leases

Is there a way to get the next-server (sname) field of the dhcp
response included in the dhclient.leases file?  It appears that
filename (file), which appears in an adjacent field and is used in a
similar manner, shows up as "filename" in dhclient.leases, but the
next-server does not.  I can't find any options to get this included
in the leases file.  I'm using dhclient V3.1.3 as included in Ubuntu
