2 wan network and VPN

Hi ,
I got a Dlink router DSR1000N
Where 2 wan is configured for dual load balancing.
Got a VPN configured from wan1 address to another remote address
I am just wondering , when a local traffic wants to use VPN ? How does it take the wan 1 route correctly Insta was of wan2 . Should there be a static route set or ?
Hope my question is understandable

It will take the route (IP address) you define in the VPN setup. Most any VPN setup I see over the years only has one external IP address it talks to.

Ok. So 2 wans for load balancing.
My understanding  now is - for all traffics packets takes either wan1 or wan2 . And when it hits the VPN remote ip, it automatically takes wan1 address. Does not need any static routes . Am I correct. ?

No it does not need that. Dual WAN is two WAN IP addresses and VPN will use just one. It will not re-route after that except the route built into the VPN setup (specific IP to start with a local subnet through the Internet with a specific target IP and a local subnet at the other end)

Ok.
So when local address hit the dlink router for VPN, it goes through wan 1(which is configured for VPN) and when all other traiffic hits dlink. It will either take wan1 or wan2 for internet access depends upon the Łóad. Hope I understood it

If not otherwise configured, then yes, that is correct.
