Not a good idea, unless all the records match up. If the system has
different addresses you would need to make very sure they are all in DNS.
If the DNS server fails that also means that your firewall rules will be
skipped and nothing works.
I use it for a few websites, but nothing I administer locally for
something which I know the IP address won't ever likely change.
