It's fine for there to be legacy entryCSNs and a contextCSN for serverID of 
0.  However, it is not fine for any master in an MMR setup to have a 
specific serverID of 0.  If you're running with serverID's 0-3, I'd simply 
try an ldapmodify on the server with 0 to set its serverID to 4, and then 
do a modification against it, so it generates a new contextCSN that gets 
pushed out to all nodes.
