Depends on your setup. If the interface that dom0 is bridging over is
on DHCP, then domU will have DHCP-assigned address as well.

Put them on a bridge that has access to outside world. For example, if
originally eth0 is on a company intranet with IP address assigned by
DHCP, then you can create a bridge named br0 (or whatever you like)
with eth0 as its slave. You then tell domUs to use br0 bridge, and
they will be on the same network as your eth0. That means other hosts
on your company intranet can access domUs just like any other physical
host on the network.
