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

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.
