Adding reserved host to the dns (bind)

I'm using dhcp3 on Debian Lenny (the apt package).
In my dhcp server config file, I set some reserved address by MAC 
address for some hosts. For doing it, I need to set the hostname.

host printer-sec-NB {
                 hardware ethernet 00:23:7d:7e:da:79;

So I wanted to add to bind these hostnames (in my example 
"printer-sec-NB which FQDN should be

zone is managed and well configured in my bind9 server.

I found on the net the way to configure ddns but this is not what I want 
to do : I don't want to retrieve the hostname of the computer itself but 
the one I set myself in the reservation.

Is it possible? If it is can you give me some hints or a tuto?

Thank you,
