Why is hub transport service runing under NT Authority\NetworkService account?

Why would the exchange transport service on one of my hub trasnport servers be running under the NT Authority\NetworkService account? All other exchange services on all other exchange servers run under the Local System account?

Can I simply change this back to Local System account?

thank you

On my Exchange servers, I change all the Exchange services to run under a domain service accout.  I make sure that the account has full Exchange permissions and local admin on all the Exchange servers.

By default the log on type should be "NT Authority\NetworkService account." and not Local System Account.
