The default tftp server is the dhcp server itself. If you want to use
a different tftp server you can use the "next-server" directive in
your dhcp.conf (see the man page for dhcp.conf for more details). I
don't know how to configure Grub to use another tftp server, but I
guess it is possible.

Best regards,

Rasmus
