I forgot to tell that we of course use BBSA to provision our servers. Version is at the moment 126.96.36.199 (8.1 SP1 Patch2), but we are upgrading to 8.1 SP3 soon. Our provisioining work well.
Will it run under winpe ? you could load it into your winpe image and run it as a pre-install command.
Actually I don't know. I even don't know if DBAN is the best solution to do things like this. That was something I hope someone has done somehow already.
But pre-install is not good enough. We must wipe the server when old customer stops using it. Then the server will be shut down and it may take months until we re-provision it again. During that time we must be sure that the server is already securely wiped. If it for some reason would be powered up, old data must not exist there anymore.

Create a special winpe image w/ the dban or whatever tool. Boot the target into that winpe image. The wip happens automatically, and then you can shutdown the server.
