If you joining computer to Active Directory and you have more than one DC then information will be synchronized across whole Forest.
There is not such of think like which DC the server has joined into,
You can check to which DC object authenticated to.

If we talking about CNF, they are duplicates, so you can delete it but there is a procedure how to find and remove CNF duplicates.

It's hard to ask controller who is authenticated by powerhell command but you can use TCPView program from Sysinternals and run it on DC to see all connection
