Just a very interesting series of posts by Jorge on how the Active Directory clients determine which domain controller servers their logon request and which domain controller sends the GPO files over.

A small add-on: using start - run - cmd and execute "set" you can easily determine your logon server. Determining which DC sent the GPO's can be determined by running "gpresult /R" (Windows 2008) or "gpresult" (Vista)

The following Technet article is also a nice source of information: How DNS Support for Active Directory Works
