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.
