Danny,

A name in the 'restrict' line may work for him now, and this issue may be
resolved in the future, but in general at this time it is a Bad Idea unless
there is Good Reason to believe a single address will be returned for
the name both now and in the future.

IE, the current BCP is to use IPs for 'restrict' addresses.  I do not know
why this is not the BCP for server/peer targets as well, but that is a
different matter.
