Cannot remote startup database if dynamically registered with the listener?

I get error message when I try to use sqlplus to startup my db remotely: sqlplus sys_at_xyzdb as sysdba

ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor

I found that I cannot use sqlplus to remote startup my database without static entry "(SID_DESC=(GLOBAL_NAME........))" in listener.ora. Since some documents said that we should use dynamically registered with listener for load balance in RAC environment, is there any way to startup db without static db register?
