You're right, there is nothing in the protocol that prevents Jabber 
using "dynamic DNS addresses" that are updated when ever the IP changes. 
But the implementation of jabberd 1.4.x does not allow you to use these 
addresses. It chaces DNS entries it has resolved for two hours and 
doesn't care if the TTL value is shorter.
