Bonjour gateway - hive manager differing from APs

I'm having difficulties with Bonjour gateway, I think in the past I may have manually set which AP should be the DA but I can't recall that right now.

On any ap "show amrp" says:
My DA: 10.0.11.211

On HiveManager, under monitor > bonjour gateway
it is showing a different AP as the BDD. 

Surely this should be the DA?

OK I have an update. I remember now, a while ago I wanted a specific AP to be the DA. So I went to Configure the AP in question and set the Bonjour Gateway priority to a higher value for that AP. 

However looking at the APs configuration now, it seems it has the same priority as all the other APs of 20. 

So HiveManager is seeing this AP as the Bonjour Gateway but the APs aren't. Why?

OK Update 2: The priority set on the AP that the other APs were using for their DA was set to 10, which was lower than the rest. I have set this back to 20, the same as the others, so in theory the other APs should use the AP with the lowest mac address. 

Still doesn't explain to me why Hive Manager wasn't picking up the AP with the lowest priority and using that under monitor > bonjour gateway?
