I would love to help with your problem, but can you be a little more clear as to your intentions here?

You're trying to block a computer by hostname from what exactly?

If...

 - The zone is AD Integrated
 - Secure Dynamic Updates are enforced
 - DHCP is *not* updating on behalf of your clients

Then you can create a Deny entry for that specific computer in the Security for the zone. By default, everyone has permission to Create records in the DNS zone.

If DHCP is updating for you this will not work as it is the DHCP account which performs the update, not the computer.
