I would like to know how to lookup which exchange server is acting as the master CAS server on our domain. How is this done in VB.Net?

Hmm, does it HAVE to be VB.NET?
I believe Powershell cmdlets will give you all of the roles with:
> get-ExchangeServer

From the net:
"If you are not sure about the server, you can run Get-ExchangeServer | select Name,ServerRole
...  and it will list all Exchange Servers of your organization and their respective roles. "

there is no "master" cas server
you could use powershell as FDiskWizard provided plus the cmdlet
