Error on Technet documentation

Well, it isn't an everyday event that one finds an error on Microsoft Technet web page. I thought I share it here. This is on the Exchange 2003 pre and post SP2 behaviour for the DS Proxy module which provides address book service for the Outlook clients.

The table illustrating the behavour post SP2 and the results of the new ranking algorithm does not match the descriptive text.

The descriptive text.

In this example, Exchange Server provides the UserDomain global catalog servers to the Outlook clients (in a sequential manner to load-balance requests) because those global catalog servers have a greater point calculation than the Exchange Domain global catalog servers.

Check it out here.

I thought hmm, strange. Dropped a note to MS. Lets see what happens.
