unix sockets and localhost and TLS

I've go OpenLDAP 2.2.15 running on SuSE Linux 9.2. There is one master and several slaves. The slaves run Samba and various other services that use ldap for authentication. In this case, is if more efficient to reference the ldap server via localhost like ldap://localhost or via unix sockets like ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fslapd%2fldapi? If using unix sockets, is TLS even applicable? If not, will enabling TLS in slapd.conf disable access to the unix socket?
