Actually the option I was looking for is 'addn-hosts'.

For a directory we have 'dhcp-optsdir', 'dhcp-hostsdir' and 'hostsdir'
but not for a file.

Thanks for the pointer.


I'll assume that 'dhcp-hostsfile', 'dhcp-opsfile' and 'addn-hostsfile'
when used with a directory performe like their directories cunterpart
with the exception of 'inotify'.
