Once a DC is assigned for authentication for a client, is it set as the only authentication for the client until a restart? I have clients in a building and if you try the SET command it tell you the logon server. I have 3 DC's so if it has DC 1 as the SET logon server does it use that server for authentication forever until a reboot? Thanks

Any time a client needs to authenticate, it will authenticate to the first available DC, regardless of which DC it authenticated to a few minutes ago.

So the answer is "no".
