What format will the content be?  If it's PDF the DX will work well for reading.  I'm not sure how much notetaking capability it has when using the PDF reader functions, however.

If they're mostly text, and not copy-protected, however, he may be able to convert them adequately to Kindle's native format (mobi or prc).  There are various utilities, mostly free, readily available on line for converting almost any format.  Notetaking is pretty good in that case and the question becomes whether he wants the extra screen size of the DX or the portability of the standard sized Kindle.

The DX does NOT have WiFi, only 3G.  The regular Kindle, as you are probably aware, comes with WiFi or both WiFi and 3G. 

And the DX is at least twice as much cost-wise.

Plus, all annotations are synced to kindle.amazon.com (if you have sync turned on). It makes it easy to retrieve note later when on a laptop or computer.
I'm not sure this is the case for content that you acquire from elsewhere than Amazon. . . .
