How determine which DC a site should use for authentication?

I have multiple sites throughout our state and we have 2 DC's in data centers in a couple other cities. I have inherited this domain so what I wonder is how do I determine which site authenticates to which DC or which one it should be authenticating too? I have over 14 sites. I know the sites are suppose to authenticate to closest DC in proximity but its hard to determine from a map standpoint since they are so close together. Is there something I can check on the DC sites and services to find this out? Thanks

Would you know how to determine which site should authenticate to which DC?
You can set that using the command
set logonserver=dc2
on the sites that you want to be authenticated by a perticular DC.
hope this helps.
