You should also notify cellservdb@grand.central.org so that the
central CellServDB records can be updated.  IIRC, at least windows
clients use the name after the '#' for address lookups -- it is not
just a comment field.

(You could, of course, make the corresponding change by hand for
machines that you manage, too.)
