Do you have zone statements in your dhcpd.conf ?
If not using secure updates, you can just rely on having the zones correctly set up (correct SOA record) and dhcpd will find the master server from the SOA record. But since you are using signed updates, you must specify zones in dhcpd.conf - the syntax is *almost*, but not quite, identical to that in named.conf.
