dhcp, dyndns and "set ddns-fwd-name" vs "set ddns-client-fqdn"

I have a running setup with dhcpd3 and dynamic dns, for
which dns updates works fine for leases containing:

set ddns-fwd-name "host.domain.com";

but not working (the dns don't get updated) when
a lease contain:

set ddns-client-fqdn "host.domain.com";

first, is it a client problem?

what are the difference between both syntax?

can I tweak my dhcpd.conf to also understand
the set ddns-client-fqdn syntax?
