They will not be able to locate a server by host name.-dns is responsible for host name to ip address resolution. thus, if the dns server is down, name resolution from host name to ip address will not be possible; thus dns clients will not be able to locate a server by host name.incorrect answers:a: wins is responsible for netbios name to ip address resolution.b: arp is responsible for ip address to mac address resolution.c: dns is responsible for host name to ip address resolution. it is not required if workstations use ip addresses to locate the servers.references:david groth and toby skandier, network+ study guide (4th edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2005, pp. 136-142, 144.
