It means that your scope is running low on addresses...you either need to increase the scope or if your turnaround on leases is farily quick then reduce the lease time

you wont find too much in there of use...its more a log of client requests and server acknowledgements etc.....you want to look in your system or application log for DHCP errors

See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/259786 which points to http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/f2013b82-248c-4ea4-a0e5-6e72b219163d1033.mspx?mfr=true

It appears to be

"Scope alert: All IP addresses have been allocated by the DHCP server and are in use. No more clients can obtain IP addresses from the DHCP server because it has no more IP addresses to allocate."
