The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides a mechanism
for host configuration that includes dynamic assignment of IP
addresses and fully qualified domain names.  To maintain accurate
name-to-IP-address and IP-address-to-name mappings in the DNS, these
dynamically assigned addresses and fully qualified domain names
(FQDNs) require updates to the DNS.  This document identifies
situations in which conflicts in the use of fully qualified domain
names may arise among DHCP clients and servers, and it describes a
strategy for the use of the DHCID DNS resource record (RR) in
resolving those conflicts.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
