You mean they can be connected TO as public hosts ?
I suggest that for this class of machines you have a different dns
zone and don't do split horizon dns for that zone. It also gives some
differentiation between your official hosts and anything a student
might put up - bearing in mind that someone can give their machine
any official sounding name and that's what will go in the DNS !
