Does MSSQL Peer-to-Peer - Transactional Replication leverage Sites and Services topology>

I am looking to give my remote offices a better experience with one of our primary applications that sites on top of a MSSQL 2005 Server.  If I setup a Peer to Peer transactional replication will users in Site A talk to Site A Peer server and Site B users talk to it's Site Peer?

That only depends to which server they are configured to connect to.

Ok , so  this is not dynamic?

What do you mean with dynamic?
Or you connect to one server or to another one.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

With Active Directory and Sites & Services I can control how locations access resources.  
If I have a file server with DFS (Distributed File System) and I configured my Sites & Services for one subnet to first look to see if the DFS server is avail bale in the location it will access the files locally, but if it is not available it will try another server in another location.

I was wondering if PEER to PEER setup will take advantage of this?

What that has to have with SQL Server?

I was thinking that PEER to PEER would give local access to the DB with little to configure.  

If I have an application that runs on top of a  MSSQL DB and I set up P2P Trans log replication I want the  application to talk to the nearest MSSQL server.  How would I accomplish this?

The only way I see it to be done is to have 2 different configuration files, where you need to use them depending on their location. i.e., you should identify which machines connect to which SQL Server and then provide the respective config file for that machine.
