Web.Config authentication Setting VS IIS Authentication mode

Hi,
Can anyone tell me which settings take precedence,is it web.config or IIS.I know it is Web.config but i have an app which has <authenitcation mode = windows> set in web.config ,anonymous in IIS and uses forms based authentication.I am totally confused.Can anyone provide me with a msdn article claiming this.
Thanks,

Hi ther,

Is not that it takes precedence, it's not always tied. For example, to use ASP.NET forms authentication, you'd normally use Anonymous authentication in IIS.

Here are a couple of links:

IIS Authentication:
