if the client does not send a hostname, you will need to supply one.
'man dhcpd.conf' says:
The DHCP server determines the client’s hostname by first looking for a
ddns‐hostname configuration option, and using that if it is present.
If no such option is present, the server looks for a valid hostname in
the FQDN option sent by the client. If one is found, it is used; oth‐
erwise, if the client sent a host‐name option, that is used. Other‐
wise, if there is a host declaration that applies to the client, the
name from that declaration will be used. If none of these applies, the
server will not have a hostname for the client, and will not be able to
do a DNS update.
