This is a query re the technote on www.gpoguy.com

re the issue of the server from which AD info retrived being different from the 
which delivers GPO data

would like to understand the concept of DFS referral a bit better

1. I assume DFS referral request is sent to the logon server discovered by SRV 
SVC record lookup data) records in the DNS ??

2. the DFS server responds with a referral list

prior to this patch how would a DFS referral list be ordered ?

with this patch and configured with 'preferlogondc', what mechanism does the DFS
server put the 'logon server' at the top of the list ?

3. how does the client respond to the DFS referral list say in terms of 
to other servers in the list

retry / timeout if not avaialble ?
