I have multiple sites on my internal network all connected with IPSec tunnels.   Each site has a Windows domain controller.  In addition to the domain controller, each site also has a NAS which serves as a file server.   My issue is this.    I want to publish a specific DNS name within one of the internal zones.   Assign each site a version of this name that points to the local NAS device.      I have all the IP information defined in sites and services.   When I have the DNS name something like I want the systems to return the IP of the local device.  What I'm seeing is from corporate, when I reference the device I'm getting random responses from across all of the offices.    
  Is there a way to make DNS prefer IP's on the site I sit on instead of round robin looking through the list of available servers?
