The following gives me the last logon time of a user.  However, given the existence of products like “Real Last Logon”, my understanding is that the below query would need to be run on several domain controllers to get a accurate time.

dsquery * domainroot -filter "(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(sAMAccountName=%username%))" -attr sAMAccountName distinguishedName lastLogon

Can the dsquery tool target a specific domain controller to ease this burden?
