Assuming (since this was not provided) the use of PADL's nss_ldap, nss_ldap's 
configuration file. Depending on where the nss_ldap package was obtained, this 
is either /etc/ldap.conf (upstream, Red Hat-style distributions, recent Ubuntu 
versions I think) or /etc/libnss_ldap.conf (I think, on Debian).

Yes. Or, if you have a recent enough version of nss_ldap, consult the 
nss_ldap(5) man page.
