Default Resolve VPN client hostnames

I have a number of VPN clients connecting to a Ubuntu 12.04 server (This was set up using Zentyal 3.0). I need to connect many more.
I would like to be able to address the clients from the server by client hostname.
The Openvpn server gives all the clients IPs in the range. The Server running Openvpn has a address.
The DNS server is up and running but it does not resolve the host names of the clients on the VPN.

How can I set up the DNS on the server so that I can ping, ssh etc., and connect to the Clients by hostname, from the server, rather than by IP address.
