If none of the servers are providing externally (publically) accessed services, then no DNS changes should be needed at all, as long as the internal network is not changed.

If the servers provide public services that are accessed from the internet, then your public DNS 'A' records will need to be updated to reflect the new public IP address(es), plus perhaps a PTR record or two.  

One of the most commonly used public services is an e-mail portal (i.e., Microsoft Exchange Outlook Web Access).  If one or more of your servers is an e-mail server that is accessed from outside the network via a web login, then the external DNS 'A' record for that name will need to be updated with the new public IP address.  The e-mail server's name should also be registered in a DNS PTR (reverse lookup) record--often done for you by your ISP--to help prevent your outbound e-mail being identified as spam and being rejected.

Hope this helps.

If the clients experience issues after the migration, in an elevated command prompt on the user workstation
1.) ipconfig /release
2.) ipconfig /renew
3.) ipconfig /flushDNS
4.) ipconfig /registerDNS

This will ensure that the old IPs are released, new IPs are requested and the DNS cache on the client are flushed and registered with the DNS server.
