ESXi Host and DNS

I wonder if ESXi hosts need to have DNS configured.
I know that vCenter and VM guests need to have DNS configured, but I am not sure why ESXi will require DNS configuration..

any clarification on this will be helpful

Thanks

General rule of thumb:

any node in a managed network environment belongs in DNS.

Yes, it's recommended to have working DNS configured on your ESXi hosts for the correct operation of VMware HA.
