Sure. You need to do start dhcp-ddns daemon (often nicknamed d2) and
tweak couple knobs in DHCP server to actually send name change requests
to that deamon. It will then send DNS updates to your DNS server, be it
BIND or any other RFC2136 compliant server.

See Sections 8.2.16 (DDNS for DHCPv4), 9.2.21 (DDNS for DHCPv6) and 12
(DHCP-DDNS server):

Hope that helps,
