I have 2 Exchange 2003 front-end servers and 6 Exchange 2003 back-end servers. One of the back-end server was the first server in the site. By default, it is a master for the only one routing group that I have. I need to know if it is better to have one of the front-end server be the master.
As I understand it, all back-end member servers contact the master server for routing purposes. Would it not be more efficient to have the front-end be the master server, since it handles outbound email flow?
