net ads join seems to restrict itself to the first 5 DCs of those it finds

Hi folks,

We are finding that net ads join is unable to join because it only
issues cldap requests for the first five DCs it finds when looking up
_ldap._tcp.realm ...

Is this correct?

The problem seems to be that sites and services is not correctly
configured to return the closest DC first in the list and the one they
should be contacting is around 16 out of 29 returned.
