net use command

I'm setting up a simple batch file to setup my network drives. in the past i have used the /persistent switch. At one of the places i worked, /persistent:no seemed to be better for when laptop users were offsite. I think what was happening was the /persistent:no switch would keep windows from continuously trying to connect to network shares that didn't exist when they where offsite.
So my question is, does the persistent:yes switch make windows keep looking for a share, and does the :no option make windows not look for the share?
