separating syslog output by application

Is there a way to have syslogd separate output by application? What I wish to do is separate all the dhcpd entries in my logfile to a separate file. Currently, they are logged with the facility of 'daemon', but I don't wish to redirect ALL daemon entries. Hmmm.....
The manpage tells me that I can redirect stderr straight from dhcpd, but then won't I still get all the entries in my syslog file?
Any suggestions?
-with thanks
