can dhcpd keep working when encountering a syntax error

is it possible to configure dhcpd to keep working when the dhcpd.conf
contains a syntax error

for example if someone enters the mac address : aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:gg by mistake

at reload the whole service stops and can't restart until someone corrects
the error

we would like it if it would continue serving ip and reporting the error in
the log file

maybe a major warning in the log instead of stopping , something like that
