Since both have the same suffix, one must be a replica of the
other and you need a referral to send writes attempted on the
slave to the master.

If the servers have different suffixes, then the subordinate
server needs a default referall pointing it's immediate superior
and the superior one needs a referral entry to delegate the
subtree to its subordinate.

The U-Mich guide (sections 10 and 11) provides some insight into
referrals and replicas, (though the configuration examples might
be a little off).
