That's what Peter explains in it's previous post.
Dyndns supposes that the user already know about the server he wants
to connect to.
The idea behind zeroconf is to advertise the available svnserver to
all clients that are able to handle it.

And as Garrett says, the best thing is, not only to advertise
svnservers but also all or part of the repositories availables on
that svnserver.
