It's somewhat hidden, open the Network List from Xchat->Network List or with the Ctrl-S hotkey. Select the network you want to save, choose 'edit' and place the channels in the 'Channels to join' entry box.

Using XChat 2.8.6 with the channel switcher preference set to 'tabs' you can simply right-click the channel name and the context menu will offer an option to save it as a favourite.

The reverse is also true. Right-clicking the tab on a saved channel will offer the opportunity to remove the channel from the favourites list.
