We have seen some clients using a DISCOVER for what should be a REQUEST,
since they had an already valid lease and had the address configured and
replying to ICMP echoes. But you have "ping-check" set to false in the
configuration you posted, so that shouldn't be it.

Maybe not terribly constructive, but if you're running DHCPd v3 (which I
have a feeling you do) you should seriously consider upgrading. Many
many things have been fixed the last decade-or-so.
