DNS not updating printers

My new Server2012R2 Domain controllers and additional secondary servers are not picking up the printers for which a reservation has been assigned in DHCP.  DHCP is running on the PDC/DC with fail-over partner configured.

The zones on all DC with DNS show they are integrated with Active Directory.

Dynamic updates are set to secure only on the DC/DNS servers.
Do I need to change that to secure and nonsecure?  If yes, what is the impact in terms of security.  We are a small shop but have good size facility with about 150 devices connected.

I know that the printers are not active directory aware, but thought once the reservation was in DHCP on a PDC the gave it control over the ip.
Any ideas are much appreciated.
Thanks

If you've set a reservation in DHCP for the printers and have the printers being assigned a DNS server addresses, as you have only secure dynamic updates , the address records won't be automatically created.

As you have set static addresses then I would suggest the easiest way is to set manual Address (A) records in the DNS servers.
