ldap client of server on same host

I'm a bit weak on LDAP but I could not find this topic in the archives. If I configure a host (in my case, Solaris 9/10) to use LDAP authentication through PAM, can I use an LDAP server running on the same host? 

The documentation for the native solaris ldap says that you CANNOT do this. But since I'm not an LDAP guru, I don't quite see why not.

My goal is to have a remote host by a replication client of a central server. Then if I want to login to the remote host, it will use its local copy of the directory since the master server(s) may often be unreachable.

Has anyone done this before?
