A simple configuration for back-meta you may find here

The uppercase suffices are presented by meta backend, while the lower
case suffices are the remote servers.
Due to the fact that back-ldap is still actively developed, I would
suggest to experiment with stacked back-ldap, something like

database ldap
suffix cn=people,dc=example,dc=com
uri ldap://some.host

database ldap
suffix cn=dns,dc=example,dc=com
uri ldap://other.host

database bdb
suffix dc=example,dc=com
