What feature are you talking about? I am not very clear from the above
para ...  It is funny about how you mention using DNS and DHCP
together. They are both an antithesis of each other ... DHCP gives
dynamic addresses, while DNS relies on static addresses. To allow DNS
to work reliably you would have to hardcode the IP addresses of the
servers whose addresses you would have to serve. Of course, I am only
talking of simple DNS servers - not round robin load balancing ones.
