 From slapd-ldap manpage:

--- CUT HERE ---
       uri <ldapurl>
              LDAP server to use.  Multiple URIs can be set  in  in  a  
              ldapurl  argument, resulting in the underlying library 
              cally call the first server of the list that responds, e.g.

              uri "ldap://host/ ldap://backup-host";

              The URI list is space- or comma-separated.
--- CUT HERE ---

So it seems that it does dynamic failover. I'll try it out as soon as I 
have some time.

Thanks, I've noticed that in the docs!
