Windows domains list all servers in SRV records, but they have a deeper
concept called "sites", where admins can tell which subset of
controllers a client should use (local to them). In order to discover
the right site you need to do additoinal CLDAP queries to AD at startup
time to find out what is the site to use and then you can query
site-specific DNS entries to find the list of DCs.

This is more complex than what we have in current SSSD and is
implemented in Samba's Winbind for example.
