That's the hostname associated with the client.  Even if the client 
reports a different hostname when requesting the lease, the hostname 
used in the config will be what is served in DNS.

PS: Simon, I saw a typo in my version of the man page under 
"--dhcp-host": "omit" is misspelled.  Sorry for not patching, but 
this should be a simple fix. :)  (And maybe you already have it 
fixed, my version is not current.)
