When one of these events triggers a DNS update, the DHCP Client service, not the DNS Client service, sends updates. If a change to the IP address information occurs because of DHCP, corresponding updates in DNS are performed to synchronize name-to-address mappings for the computer. The DHCP Client service performs this function for all network connections on the system. This includes connections that are not configured to use DHCP.

If you use multiple Windows Server 2003-based DHCP servers on your network and if you configure your zones to enable secure dynamic updates only, use the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in to add your DHCP server computers to the built-in DnsUpdateProxy group. When you do this, all your DHCP servers have the secure rights to perform proxy updates for any one of your DHCP clients. For more information, see the "Using DNS servers with DHCP" topic or the "Manage groups" topic in Windows Server 2003 Help.
