outlook /rpcdiag

After running the outlook /rpcdiag command, it shows the connections to the exchange server and a directory server. The exchange server connection is fine but the pc's at one location seem to bee connecting to the wrong directory server. Is there a way to force it to connect to a different directory server. We seem to be having problems because of this.

This should really be done by the domain. Do you have sites and services configured in the domain, with the correct subnets etc?
