Drones are nomads. Some will fly with swarms, especially secondary swarms, which have virgin queens in them. At least they are when they leave the hive with the swarm, although they may not be virgins when they arrive at their new home.
Drones don't "live" in any one hive. They travel from hive to hive. You will normally find many drones in a hive that have queen cells ready to emerge.
