That's an example for logging in bind not dhcpd.

dhcpd only logs to syslog unless you start it with option "-d". With
"-d" it will log everything to stderr.

You can't change it in with dhcpd.conf. The standard daemon will only
log to syslog.

You can get more debugging messages if you define some DEBUG symbols
during compilation. See the source code for details.
