If you are interested in finding about second round control, you would probably ask for kings by bidding 5NT over 5H. Many experts play that 6D in this type of sequence asks for third-round control. I suspected that not to be the intent in this case, and my favored action was to bid 5S, assuming partner had a two-suiter.
