Domain Logonserver

Domain Logonserver
I have 2 AD sites, site1 and site2 and both of them have domain controllers which are also DNS servers.

in site1 when I join a computer to the domain it takes too long to show up up in AD.
By chance I run the SET command  in the computer that I joined to the domain and it shows that logonserver is the domain controller in site2.

Can someone tell me the reason why it's taking the logonserver in different site than the local site?

thanks

Wow fixed it in a weird way...

I shutdown the DC that is in the same site as the computer I am trying to join to the domain.
That means when I tried to join the computer to the domain it queried the DC in the remote site since the DC in the local site was shut down.
and boom it says welcome to mydomain.com

to summarize it, there should be a problem with the local DC
