[Dnsmasq-discuss] dhcp-host precedence request due multiple matches

so, if I have two virtual computers running over the same hardware, what
should be used as identifier for dnsmasq? the physical mac-address (just
one, as it is just one physical card)? the dhcp-client-id or hostname
(configurable as per logical device level)?

That's exactly my point, that there might be where more than one dhcp-host
entry match the DHCP request.
