The OpenLDAP Client and Multiple DNS Records


How does the OpenLDAP client library handle multiple A records being returned for a DNS query for an LDAP server?

That is to say, if "host ldap" returns, and, will the OpenLDAP client library only connect to  If a connection to fails, will it try and then

Basically we're trying to achieve redundant servers and load balancing using a round-robin-style DNS entry.
