You can probably get by with just changing /etc/ddclient.conf.
Uncomment the "#mail=root" line, and change it to mail the messages
to whoever you want. (Assuming you have outgoing mail set up.)
Configure the "use=" line to what ever you need on that machine, and
do not set up any dynamic DNS service to be updated.

I have not tried it, but it should work...
