Public folder defaults to wrong Exchange server

We recently added another exchange 2007 server to our forest for DR.  So now we have two Exchange 2007 servers.  One at main site and the other at DR site with VPN connection between.  We are using XOSOFT WANSYNC to keep the messages stores in sync.  

After the initial setup the public folders started acting up at the main site.  After some troubleshooting, it appears that the main site is using the copy of the public folder database stored on the remote exchange server.  If the remote server is down public folders cannot be accessed.  Outlook reports a network error has occurred.  The mailbox database seems fine and continues to work if the remote server is down.

I have found some information on how to home the public folder, but I am not sure if that is the solution.  

How do I correct this so that Outlook users at the main site connect to the Public folders at the main site and there is no dependency on the remote server?

Please run a Recover Active Server and set the master server as the master server regardless of what server is currently the active server. This should take care of it.
