sorry a few qs
how to tell which is primary?
ur reply maybe has some typos, can u please reword in an easier to read way?
another bit of info that dc1 & dc2 are virtual and dc3 physical, so dc3 will always be the first server on after a network shutdown, should dc3 therefore be the primary?

great, should it be the actual ip or 127.0.0.1?

...and finally what about the physical servers that host the virtual servers, should their primary dns entry be dc3 the only physical dc?

You can use 127.0.0.1 if you want. And the DNS for the Host should probably go to the Physical DC.
