The domain controller providing group policy

Hi guys,
I hope you are all well.

I am trying to work out what event logs, if any, or by any other mechanism, that allows you to determine what domain controller is providing group policy for both the computer configuration portion of a gpo, and for the user portion?

Any help greatly appreciated.

All domain controllers provide the same. If they don't, you have a replication problem.
To determine the logonserver (which serves policies as well), open cmd and fire
echo %logonserver%

Hmm..... I was under the assumption that ideally, your logonserver would be the same system that provides the list of gpos, but that this does not necessarily have to be.
Are there any particular event logs or information that can be gleaned to determine the server that did indeed provide both authentication, and the list of gpos (for both computer and user portions)?
To determine, setup auditing on the netlogon share.
