[Samba] query about PC setups

I have a basic question about this, because I think I still don't really 
understand how this method works.  When you set up the netlogon parameters 
and your startup.bat script, all that stuff is on the server side, 
right?  So when you log on to your PC, how does the PC know that it's 
supposed to contact the server and download the startup.bat file?  It seems 
to me that somehow you have to have some way of telling the PC that it 
needs to contact the Samba server to get the bat file.
