"name not in use" prerequisite for ddns updates

I was wondering if there's any way to remove the prerequisite "name does not
exist" for dynamic A records in the interim-style DDNS update method. I have
isc dhcpd and bind 9 working together for DDNS, but because of the way I'm
handing out leases, I want the newest name for a client to always win and be
updated, no matter what (I'm using the dhcp server as a back-end to a VPN
concentrator who acts as a dhcp proxy). I thought about using ad-hoc, but
apparently it's not supported any more.

Thank you!
