MACs by default will not register their connection.  You can setup in DHCP to automatically register clients in DNS or manually register them.  Doing in through DHCP is a better idea.  Unless their is a setting on the MAC to make it register itself, not sure, I am not a MAC person.  Best bet through DHCP.
