SonicWall DHCP vs. W2k DHCP

Is there any benefit to having my SonicWall run the DHCP services on my network as opposed to a W2k server?  Or any downfalls?

Hi
I'm sure others will have much to say on this but basically I'd always use the dhcp server in windows above the router/firewall anyday. One very good reason to use it is as detailed below in relation to dynamic updates, plus you can usually configure a greater range of scope options (suppose it depends on the router though).
How do I configure DNS dynamic update functionality in Windows 2000?
