Is it a fact that the computers must be in the COMPUTERS folder to take advantage of secured dynamic updates?

If so, then what if you want to control Group Policy settings for Computers by placing them in different OU's?

No it isn't.

Computers must only be a member of the domain and the DNS servers must be AD integrated (IE be DCs as well) to use secure DDNS

The OU a machine resides in has no bearing on DNS for clients

I figured it out.  Non windows 2000, xp, or 2003 clients that rely on DHCP to update their (A) record and pointer record must be stored in the computers container.  If you move them out of the builtin computers container then DHCP cannot update their records.  Windows 2000, XP, and 2003 can update their own DNS records no matter where they are located in the AD.

You didn't mention old windows clients!

You need to look in the configuration tabs of the DHCP server. It is capable of performing the DDNS updates for legacy clients
