So are you saying I need to write the ACL like this:
access to * by group/posixGroup/memberUid="cn=Domain
Admins,ou=Groups,dc=cougarnet,dc=bible,dc=edu" write

Yes, but I just refer to the documentation since I never use it myself.

What is the default object class that would not require me to do it this way?

'groupOfNames' with attribute 'member' according to http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/452.html

That is correct, and with the member: attribute, it wants the fully qualifed DN of the entity. Quick example:

member: uid=quanah,cn=accounts,dc=stanford,dc=edu

Says that my account entry is what has access. When I bind to the server, I get mapped to my account entry.
