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

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

General rule of thumb:

any node in a managed network environment belongs in DNS.
