I would think that it would give out its address as the DNS server in 
its DHCPOFFER, and function as a DNS cache as well.

Are you sure that its DDNS is for the inside machines?  The users' guide 
doesn't mention that, nor being a DNS cache.  It does mention keeping 
your public IP updated in a couple of dynamic DNS services.
