Static set in pihole (dhcp reservation) or static set on the server?
Assuming it's the latter, it is DNS resolution in pihole. Either way, it's

For reference, pihole uses dnsmasq under the covers and only exposes a
subset of the functionality and may need you to fiddle with it in depth to
make it work the way you want.
