These rfc (2255 and the 2251) was useful for me:

Also I recomend the use of dn like:

In the list under a title like "subtree replication" Gerard Carter
explains this item (about the 16 Jan 2001).
In the section 9 of the Administrator's Guide also the topic is covered.

To avoid loops perhaps you need more especific referrals for superior

this simple "superior dc=unav, dc=es" referral causes some loops to me:
#referral       ldap://arcos.cti.unav.es/  

these morte specific works fine
referral        ldap://arcos.cti.unav.es/o=smb,dc=unav,dc=es
referral        ldap://arcos.cti.unav.es:8000/o=alumni,dc=unav,dc=es
referral        ldap://arcos.cti.unav.es:8000/o=people,dc=unav,dc=es
