I doubt they were even thinking about the Dauntless (or chose to overlook it) when they conceived NX-01.
I don't think it's a coincidence that the registry numbers for both ships were so similar.
I think it was a case that they just wanted to use the NX-01 registry and weren't too concerned that some other ship in VOY had been designated NX-01-A.

According to reports, the producers weren't above reusing the Akira-class--totally unaltered--for the NX-class, even though it had been seen briefly in First Contact (Doug Drexler and ENT art team apparently insisted on altering it).
