In fact the DHCP and TFTP services are running on one node.
The server has two interfaces. One is used for internet connection, and the other
is used for local purposes. So the interface is

3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000
    link/ether 08:00:27:5a:3e:be brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global eth1

So I changed the dhcpd.conf to

   subnet netmask {
      allow booting;
      allow bootp;
      filename "pxelinux.0";

Restarting the DHCP and TFTP services and starting them in the debug mode shows

DHCPDISCOVER from 08:00:27:69:73:7a via eth1
DHCPOFFER on to 08:00:27:69:73:7a via eth1
DHCPREQUEST for ( from 08:00:27:69:73:7a via eth1
DHCPACK on to 08:00:27:69:73:7a via eth1

And it seems that the previous error message is gone. However I faced another error and I will send it in another email.
