from man 5 slapd.conf:
Specify the referral to pass back when slapd(8) is
asked to modify a replicated local database. If
specified multiple times, each url is provided.
To my understanding you can never update something on a slave slapd and
then have it updated on the master - that would make it a master by
itself. Your slave should return a referral to the master, and your
client should update it there - then it gets updated on the slave too.
You can avoid mistakes by only giving the update dn of the master write
acces to the slave.
If this is not what you meant then i missed your point, sorry.
