Not necessarily. Samba supports referrals, and has an 'ldap replication sleep' 
option. It has been possible to run geographically separated DCs with samba 
and still have domain joins work in a site with a BDC (well, a DC which talks 
to an LDAP slave) since about samba 2.2.5 with OpenLDAP 2.0.x.

There may be other reasons you think you need mirror mode or MMR, but this 
shouldn't be your only one.
