On the contrary, I have only one network, but some of my machines have
two (wifi and wired) interfaces. I want them to get the same IP (if it's
free) every time, regardless of which interface they use to connect.

But yes, the solution with dhcp-host=... works fine, I just have one
minor issue - how can I create an alias for the hostname
