The ability of routers to use DNS for service names is getting to be more of a soft-requirement => hard requirement these days.  I may want to configure a DNS name for my BMP/KFAFKA magic and have it fail over if we renumber the machine (for example).

Cisco/Juniper require IPs for the NTP configuration, and if you type in something like a NTP pool name/label it will resolve it and store that in the config vs follow based on the pool measurement/accuracy over time.
