Dynamic IP implies your server is on a DHCP or BOOTP type connection, 
which does not infer that the machines associated public DNS record for 
it's current IP address will be constant. If your hostname changes each 
time the IP address changes, then you will have to reconfigure the 
server every time, and all the existing users will be invalid, as they 
now have the wrong hostname.

Dynamic DNS, as you and other state, should work just fine since the 
hostname doesn't change with the IP address.
