I suggest talking a look at tests/data/slapd-repl-{master,slave}.conf
slapd.conf(5) files as an example.

The replication log is written whenever the replogfile directive
is set.  An error message is generated if the file cannot be appended
to.  If you have a typo in the directive itself, you should see
some sort of config error (stating that the directive was ignored).

I suggest removing any default referral on the master for now.
