i would like to use multiple OpenLDAP Server with Samba. As Samba uses

It sounds like you're getting write referrals from your replicas. slapo-chain can chase those referrals server-side. You can run test032 to see a chain configuration in action; also read through slapd-ldap(5) and slapo-chain(5) man pages for background.
