Normally queries for 0x1C names (all logon servers for a domain) will return the first address of the 0x1B names (domain master browser and PDC) as first address in the result list. As many client only use the first address in the list by default, all clients will use the same server (the PDC). Windows servers have an option to disable this behavior (since Windows 2000 Service Pack 2).

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
