DHCP Scope Change (Primary DNS). Takes down APs?

We are modifying our DHCP scope running on Win 2012 R2 Server. The only change is going to be the Primary DNS Server assigned via DHCP. I've been told that we will need to reboot all the HIVE AP 330s becuase they will go offline when the change is made. Doesn't seem correct to me. Has anyone experienced this? If the change was being made at a small facility it would be no big deal but this facility has over 40 Aps and some are in the ceilings. I know I can reboot the switches or bounce the ports but I want to make sure that Aerohive tech supoort is correct. Case # 00131644

Doesn't make sense.  As soon as the lease expires, those APs should send out a DHCP request and get a new lease with the new information.

We updated our DHCP and DNS servers to Windows 2012-R2 and we did not have to reboot our AP's.
