DNSMasq is a lightweight solution:
"Dnsmasq reads /etc/hosts so that the names of local machines are available in
DNS. This is fine when you give all your local machines static IP addresses
which can go in /etc/hosts, but it doesn't work when local machines are
configured via DHCP, since the IP address allocated to machine is not fixed.
Dnsmasq integrates with the ISC DHCP daemon to solve this problem."
