Outlook 2013 connecting to wrong Exchange 2013 server

Hi Experts,

Hope someone here can help me solve my problem. Here goes…I have three Exchange 2013 SP1, CU8 servers which are part of the DAG. Two of those servers, server A and B are on premise behind Kemp LoadMaster hardware load balancer and the third one, server C is off site at the DR site. The DR site is connected to the main site via site-to-site VPN. All three Exchange boxes are multi-role, CAS and MBX on the same box. Now the problem is some of the clients (Outlook 2013) on premise are for some reason connecting to server C which again is off-site. This results in Outlook loading longer and running not as smoothly as I’d like it to due to limited bandwidth between the two sites. Outlook Anywhere internal and external URL “mail.something.com” is pointing to the Virtual IP address on the Load Balancer. Attached please find autodiscovery configuration on all three boxes.

Any help would be much appreciated.   Server A and B on premise set up with Load BalancerServer C, off-site. No Load Balancer
