ldapsearch -x -a always -b uid=alias,ou=People,dc=example,dc=net 'objectclass=*'

Yes, this would give the same result as a subtree search with a baseDN of
Should the same results be expected from searching with ...
ldapsearch -x -a always -b ou=People,dc=example,dc=net uid=alias

Probably not, because the filters are not the same. This search would only
return results that match the (uid=alias) filter. If all of the entries in the
target branch have a matching uid attribute, then the result sets might look
