Exchange 2016 Mailbox Servers Showing in Exchange 2010 CAS Arrays

We are currently in a state of coexistence with Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2016. Just noticed that the Exchange 2016 mailbox servers are members of the CAS Arrays that were created for Exchange 2010. The Exchange 2016 servers are at least part of the CAS Arrays tied to the respective AD site but wanted to confirm this is expected behavior.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Ben,
When you install new Exchange2013/2016 server to an existing Exchange 2010 environment the new server will be added to CAS array by default and your client interface will be the new server. i.e. in your case Exchange2016.
