	I took a quick peek at both the archives and  RFC 2317 - but came up
empty.  Are there any restrictions on Dynamic Updates of Classless zones?  The W2K MSFT Server Resource Kit doc states:

		"NOTE Dynamic update does not work with classless zones.  If you need to dynamically update PTR resource records,
do not use classless zones".

		I am curious as to whether this is a generic DNS Server
restriction - BIND and W2K DNS Server - or - just a  W2K DNS client / DHCP
Server  restriction.  As well - could somebody possilby provide insight as
to why this might be a restriction?
