Some DHCis not created

Our DHCP servers set up in DDNS mode for ~1000 windows XP and ~300 other 
hosts are updating Windows 2003 servers DNS and it's working well.
The DHCID are created, and when the DHCID doesn't exist and the A record 
does, I get the usual error message in the logs (not mine...)

Deleting the A record, forcing a release/renew leads to a correct 
creation of the A record, the DHCID TXT record and the reverse.
That's nice!

But, for 5 ou 10 hosts, I see that the A record and the reverse get 
created but not the DHCID.
That leads to the situation of the next DHCPREQUEST, where the DHCP 
server checks the presence of the DHCid, does not find it and complains.

I the logs, I don't see a single word about the non-creation of the 
DHCID, and no one seem to had a similar issue on this mailing list...

Any clue?
