 Well, this was easier than I thought. From dhcpd.8:

 Note: We get a lot of complaints about this.   We realize that it would
 be nice if one could send a SIGHUP to the server and have it reload the
 database.   This is not technically impossible, but it would require  a
 great  deal  of work, our resources are extremely limited, and they can
 be better spent elsewhere.   So please don't complain about this on the
 mailing list unless you're prepared to fund a project to implement this
 feature, or prepared to do it yourself.

 I checked Fedora anyway, and they return an error if someone tries to run
 the initscript with reload. This should be fixed in r7153.
