man 8 boot:

     -D    toggle single and dual console configurations.  In
           the single configuration the console will be either
           the internal display or the serial port, depending
           on the state of the -h option below.  In the dual
           console configuration, both the internal display
           and the serial port will become the console at the
           same time, regardless of the state of the -h
           option.  However, the dual console configuration
           takes effect only during the boot prompt.  Once the
           kernel is loaded, the console specified by the -h
           option becomes the only console.
