Static IP Addresses

I have a remote backup machine that is on a dynamic IP address allocation. The address doesn't seem to change very often. However, after a few days from a boot, the static aliases on the LAN vanish. Since I only have very infrequent access to it I can't say for sure what happened. The logs seem to indicate that the interface went down and then came back up. However, some of the static aliases were gone. This is a bit of a guess as to when it happened. I have dhclient.conf set with entries like:
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.255;
I understood from the man pages that was the way to have dhclient add in the static addresses if it changed anything. Is there something more that I should have done?
