Well, seeing as you have a DC and another DC, for most things it
doesn't matter, every DC is virtually identical, the only differences
being some attributes that are never replicated between DC's and the
FSMO roles and the latter can be on any DC.

To put it another way, you cannot depend on connecting to the same DC
and it doesn't matter, you should always get the same data returned.
