Agreed !

The servers must keep a static IP and the workstations dynamics, I can
see a (good) reason to the servers have dynamix address too.

If you rely on dynamic IP address on the servers, you should provide a
name resolution service too. I don't know much about windows
networking/tcp services, but I think the same server that serves DHCP
requests wil be able to provide name resolution too (once it has the
lease data).

See you !
