With a little hacking, yes. Out of the box, no.

If you have a suffix "o=org" and three entries under this suffix,
You can then create two referral entries:
Then a subtree search with base "o=org" should return the three
original entries and a result that contains the two referrals.
If the base as "l=left,o=org", than only the left entry and referrral
would be returned on a subtree search.

Using slurpd, you must replicate the data assocatiated with each
