Description

For security reasons, directory authorities only use addresses that are
explicitly configured in their torrc. Since local interface addresses are
implicit, and may depend on DHCP, directory authorities do not use this
address resolution method (or any of the other, lower-priority address
resolution methods).

See proposal 312, section 3.2.3, directory authority case:
