If you write the code to detect whether or not a given host is up, and
then do something like shell out to nsupdate when a host's state
changes, then yes, you can totally do this.

To the best of my knowledge, neither BIND, nor ISC DHCPD will help you
with determining whether the state of your hosts have changed and using
nsupdate (or whatever) to add or remove DNS information.
