DFS is not going to the closest server

I recently started using DFS to make certain network shares available faster over our WAN using Windows 2003 R2. The data is replicating very nicely, but I am finding that users are getting mapped to servers that are not in their LAN.  Instead users in Dallas are going to Denver.   Is this a problem with the DFS PKT file? How should I go about troubleshooting this?

I would check out AD Sites and Services and make sure all the appropriate subnets are defined and that they are assigned the the correct sites.
