Try to enable the last option. Maybe those clients do not request DNS registration? That option will do that even if they don't request :)

ISiek is right, this is a Microsoft 2k+ Client Feature to register their name in DNS.

CE 6.0 is to old. Should work, but maybe DHCP option 81 is necessary or you want to use a dedicated account for the dhcp server.
