Yes, but also, it *might* get worse in the future if something triggers 
the reassignment of inter-site bridgeheads, and DC11 got chosen. I can't 
remember the details, but I think that would only happen if DCs were added 
to Default-First-Site-Name or if the DC GUIDs changed (due to an upgrade 
via demote/join rather than in-place). But even so, it might not matter, 
though you could choose to worry a little bit.

I suspect that DC11 has up-to-date uptodateness vectors (since it's 
replication is up-to-date), but is not wanting to share them. In this 
case, you should not worry. You could though file a bug against samba-tool 
on bugzilla.samba.org.
