Authentication Subsystem

I have been confused as to which file the authentication chain looks at. From my understanding, if I define my authentication chain as:

<blockcode>authentication.chain=alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm,ldap1:ldap-ad</blockcode>

I understood that ldap1 refers to a directory I created (ldap1) within the ldap-ad authentication subsystem folder, with my ldap-ad properties file:

<blockcode>/opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/subsystems/Authentication/ldap-ad/ldap1/ldap-ad-authentication.properties</blockcode>

From the log errors I received, I noticed that it actually reads the file from:

<blockcode>/opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/subsystems/Authentication/ldap-ad/ldap-ad-authentication.properties</blockcode>

I don't mind using that one, I was just curious what the best practice is.
