we have 10 subnets separated by T1's
1 domain controller in each subnet which is also each subnets wins, dns and dhcp server.
what should wins and dns be set to on the domain controllers in these subnets?

right now some dc's are set to use themselves as wins and dns and some are set to go back to our main office's wins/dns and I'm trying to figure out whats right.

WINS would not really even be necessary in this environment if you really have all XP clients and do not plan to use any Win9x clients...
