Hi Camford,
A dynamic distribution group is a group of mailbox users and mail-enabled users. It is a kind of special kind of distribution group which is supported by the cloud-based service. Every time a message is sent to the group, the membership list for dynamic distribution groups is premeditated.
Dynamic distribution groups are constructive if you want to cover up the members of a distribution group. Only a single copy of the message is transmitted in this organization because these dynamic distribution groups are expanded.
When your organization uses both the cloud-based service and on-premises, dynamic distribution groups are also functional in cross-premises. Hope the information above could help you in your problem.

The dynamic distribution groups are the mail-enabled Active Directory group objects which are built to speed up the bulk sending of email messages as well as other information inside a Microsoft Exchange organization. The difference with regular distribution groups that has a defined or definite set of members is that, with dynamic distribution groups, the membership list is calculated every time the group receives a message according to the defined filters and conditions.

When there is an email message sent to the dynamic distribution group, the email message is delivered or distributed to all of the recipients in the organization that correspond to the criteria that is described for that group. Yes, the dynamic distribution group is also available in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

If you want to create a dynamic distribution group in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, visit Exchange Server 2007 Dynamic Distribution Group. If you want to try it on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, visit Exchange Server 2010 Dynamic Distribution Group.
