man slapd.conf(5)
       defaultsearchbase <dn>
              Specify  a  default  search base to use when client
              submits a non-base search  request  with  an  empty
              base DN.

Setting this will map one-level and subtree search requests with
an empty base DN to some other DN.  Useful when clients cannot
be easily configured to use DN within one of the server's
namingContexts.   The directive should not be used in situations
where the server has global knowledge (e.g.: a default referral
or a server holding the root namingContext).
