Re: dns round robin - use for redundancy
Right, unless ldap was doing DNS for you, which is probably not going to be the case, you'll still get that 50% chance of hitting the downed server. This is why you would want to set your TTL and maybe even some other timers to low settings, so you could get in and remove that server from DNS. (Personally, I set $TTL to 5 minutes, but you could go lower.) Of course, all of this is futile if you don't manage your own DNS, since you'd have to rely on someone else getting that entry out of the record in a fashionable time.
