[RP] that is what I'm doing.

[RP] But this draft gives as example in section 5 a DHCP server giving the
address of a SIP server as a DHCP option.

[RP] And this draft provides the opposite example. In the example in
section 5 the SIP server option is sent as an IP address. This draft says:

"The DHCP server then resolves the domain names listed in the options
   and sends a sip-server option containing the IP addresses that the
   resolver returned for, and a dns-server option
   containing the IP addresses returned by the resolver for and"
