I've asked this question in the past. This is one response I received.

Can anyone give me some reasons to switch from ldbm to Berkeley bdb for
LDAP backend? I had such problems getting LDAP to compile with BDB that
I gave up on it until recently. Now I don't know if it is worth the
effort to recompile all databases to BDB or leave as is. I have roughly
2000 accounts 3 slave LDAP directories and 1 master. These are used
primarily for Samba authentication.

I recommend you stay a while with ldbm; samba wrotes very few in the ldap, so the ldbm may be OK (we have about +29.000 accounts and runs as a charm).
The DBD requires a careful tunning, and may be a pain if you don't have some experience (look the list :).
