[Samba] GPO, multiple DCs, sites and sysvol

This is all about DC location
My workstations are correctly assigned to sites and correctly use their 
site DC to authenticate
But this does not apply to Sysvol connection establishement (I saw a 
workstation on site A, authenticated on DC of site A (alive), fetching 
GPO from site B, no matter the configuration). To me it seems to be 
related to the lack of DFS handling
