The slave continues to operate as normal.  The master 
LDAP server is responsible for maintaining a change log 
which slurpd uses to send changes to the slave.  If the master
is down, there will be not updates to the change log.

Of course, I am only speaking technically of OpenLDAP's 
slapd and slurpd.  Other vendors or projects may give 
you a different answer.
