DHCP Update of DNS Record

I would like to know  if it is  DHCP server that updates the DNS record for clients, or the clients themselves will update their DNS records in DNS Server.

For instance when DHCP server hands out an IP address to CLientX, would this client  update its DNS record on the DNS server or DHCP server would do it on behalf of the client ?

Thank you

Either way depending on how you have your DHCP server set up.  By default, DHCP server will try to register the PTR record, and the client will try to register the A record.

You can find the options under the properties for IPv4, IPv6, or under the scope properties, on the DNS tab.  If you want some screenshots, there are some at https://blogs.msmvps.com/acefekay/2009/08/20/dhcp-dynamic-dns-updates-scavenging-static-entries-amp-timestamps-and-the-dnsproxyupdate-group/
These settings for configuring the interplay between DHCP and dynamic DNS updates are known as DHCP Option 81.  Other DHCP options (like router, etc.) are configured elsewhere.
