The bootstrap registry record is a "left over" from the deployment, i.e. beacon 1 was referenced during the initial agent deployment and used for the very first initial policy download and inventory upload. The policy download will then inform the agent about other potential beacons available, and as already explained in Beacon and Inventory Configuration the agent will run through the list of potential beacons to upload and then based on the algorithms decide on the most appropriate and upload to it. The agent's tracker.log file will provide details about the beacon selection process and the decision made...
