Tor & dynamic dns

I have online several nodes that use xDSL lines with
 dynamic IP and fixed names using dynamic dns.

When the associates modem/router change address after a disconnection
 (common situation on italian xDSL lines, that disconnects daily
 or more often) the host  update his name without stopping tor. 

In the torrc there is the FQDN, not the IP

I noticed that such nodes appear and disappear often
 in the serifos statistics


despite the fact that they are always reachable, usable and
 present in the tor directory.

Must I restart Tor each time the IP change ? Or do something
 else ?

Or this effect is due to different reason I haaave not understood ?

Thanks a lot.   Marco
