For a local subnet, enable BIND logging, then write a script that scans the BIND logs for client IP addresses and match those against your BIND server's ARP cache (arp -a). Run the script periodically to get your MAC addresses. Again only for clients on a local subnet.

Unless he only cares about internal clients on a local subnet.
