Discontiguous network with EIGRP and auto-summary enabled

Hi.I've set up a simple 3 router network In PT with EIGRP (auto-summary enabled).All three routers are In the 10.0.0.0 classful network.

  The thing I don't understand Is , even though the sh ip route gives two routes for the 10.0.0.0 network on each router , It's still finding the correct route to each Lan.

Router A

10.0.0.0/8 is variably subnetted, 6 subnets, 2 masks

D       10.0.0.0/30 [90/21024000] via 10.0.2.2, 00:11:59, Serial0/0

                    [90/21024000] via 10.0.1.1, 00:11:35, Serial0/1

C       10.0.1.0/30 is directly connected, Serial0/1

C       10.0.2.0/30 is directly connected, Serial0/0

C       10.0.3.0/24 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0

D       10.0.4.0/24 [90/20514560] via 10.0.2.2, 00:11:59, Serial0/0

D       10.0.5.0/24 [90/20514560] via 10.0.1.1, 00:11:35, Serial0/1

Why Is EIGRP still working correctly In a discontiguous network with auto-summary enabled? I don't understand why the 10.0.4.0 and 10.0.5.0 are advertised.

I've attached the PT file.I would appreciate any assistance.

Auto summary works only at classful boundaries. Since all of your networks are in the 10.0.0.0/8 subnet, they'll be advertised as there full subnet with no summarization because they don't cross a boundary. Try creating a loopback interface on 1 of your routers in the 172.x.x.x/24 subnet and then advertise it and you should see it summarized as 172.x.x.x/16.
