Which DC is a machine contacting for GP?
Anyone know how to find out which Domain Controller a machine is using for it's group policy? I know you can use GP Modelling Wizard, but is th a way to find out in real time whilst on the client?

Running gpresult from a command prompt will give you a list of applied group policies and which DC they were applied from

More than likely your server which is also your primary DNS.
If you wanted to (as an experiment) manually insert just one of the two IPs of your DNS servers in turn on your workstation if you're trying to identify a fault.
I would also check servers are replicating correctly by looking at the event logs.

That's not guaranteed; in some cases the server you used for authentication bounces you to somewhere else for policies when it's heavily loaded.
