Microsoft, Exchange, 2007, AutoDiscoverService

We have a somewhat complex configuration for a small-to-midsize company; our topology is as follows:

1 Exchange server on the East coast
1 Exchange server on the west coast

one OU
Inbound Internet emails are relayed directly to each server from 3rd party relay service directly to separate Internet IPs from different providers. As such, different DNS entries are used for OWA
i.e.  mail.myorg.com (east coast), mail2.myorg.com (west coast)

Changing the Uri's and URLs to point to mail.myorg.com and mail2.myorg.com is a non issue since the entries require the CAS true name. My question is how would I configure AutoDiscovery Service to point to each CAS depending on which mail store a user inbox resides?

this is will be done automatically from exchange server using AD< exchange server will query the AD for list of server located in the users AD site and redirect him to those servers first.
for things to work correctly you will need to make sure that you have AD sites configured
