One thing that might work is naming your workstations differently for each 
building (eg. BLDG1-username) & auto-generating the logon script based on 
that, ie. pass the machine name to a preexec script that creates the logon 
script; the preexec script then greps the machine name for the building 
name, & writes the appropriate server name into the logon script based on 
the building name.

Or why not include the server name in the workstation names to make it
