[ubuntu-za] local DNS

I have fun little project using an embedded PC running Ubuntu.
(This one is called a "Cherry Blossom", which is based on a "Beablebone
Black", which is similar to, but more industrial than a "Raspberry Pi".
Who thinks of these names?!)
Anyway, Ubuntu Arm for these device come with:
- g_ether USB gadget, which gives you Ethernet over USB
- isc-dhcp-server, which assigns a fixed IP address to the PC
So with this setup, you can plug the device in any PC and get a
known/fixed IP address to connect to it.
I'd like to add another dimension to it. I'd like to enable DNS on this
network so I can use a hostname instead of an IPaddress. I could find
many saying that it should already work, but nothing on how to set it up
if it doesn't work.
I'd appreciate a kick in the right direction from anybody that knows.
