Usually, in the scenario you describe, the slave tells the client to do
that by returning a referral to the master.

With OpenLDAP 2.3, you can use the slapo-chain (chain overlay)
instantiated as a global overlay to obtain exactly what you describe.  To
see an example, you need to run test007 from OpenLDAP 2.3 and look at the
resulting master and slave slapd.conf (you'll find them in
tests/testrun/slapd.<i>.conf (<i>==1 for the master and <i>==2 for the
slave).  The same works for syncrepl as well.
