Azure VM nested virtualisation - Accessing Azure VNET from VM's

Hi all,
Looking into nested virtualisation in Azure - which has the potential to address some issues for our migration.

All the example articles talk about setting up a DHCP server on the Host and using NAT on the vSwitch.

I haven't found an article that specifically states it - but is it not possible to connect directly to the Azure VM's NIC? (like you would in an on-prem scenario) and utilise DHCP/DNS etc settings from the VNet ?
