As I recall, and I believe as is confirmed by a message from
ISC which won't leap out of my mail archive just now, the
difference is significant, and as follows.
The first (with 'on') is a response to DHCPREQUEST;
the second (with 'to'), to DHCPINFORM.
As you probably know, REQUEST is used for address acquisition or
renewal in order to establish or extend the client's connection
to the network, while INFORM is used to request other (perhaps
application-specific) configuration parameters.
