To my knowledge, you cannot reduce logging verbosity inside dhcpd itself. You can only change what is logged via syslog working with log levels. 

For example: 

in dhcpd.conf: 
log-facility local6; 

in syslog.conf: 
local6.error -/var/log/dhcpd-error.log 
local6.* -/dev/null 

or similar ... please note that I have not tested the syslog statements and that they may require some modification to actually work...
