Your config snippet still relying on the 'host' match, to follow
that record's parentage up to the group.

class {} statements are applied to the packet before dhcpinform()
is called.  If you have a lot of clients like this, look at
subclassing, and putting the client-specific configs in the

    match hardware;
    option domain-name "";

  subclass "special-boxes" 1:00:aa:bb:cc:dd:ee {
    option domain-name-servers;
