Drive map issue caused by DFS?

We have a GPO that maps a drive that often fails.

We have an SBS server with a secondary domain controller at another site.

Usually when the drive map fails for a user, we check the DFS and it is set to the wrong server (the one offsite, respectively).

Most of the time when we force the DFS server change it fixes, but sometimes even that doesn't fix it.

How can we change DFS so clients pull from the appropriate server?

DFS uses AD Sites & Services to calculate the "closest" repository. You may want to ensure this is setup correctly.
