[Samba] will ms dfs links go to the "closest" file server

If I enable msdfs on a samba share and create a link such as:


ln -s msdfs:serverB\\share,serverC\\share linkb


and say serverB is on one side of a 512kb network link and serverC is on
the other side; will the clients "intelligently" pick the server on the
same side as themselves or is it more of a random pick?
