You are. The above is creating three targets, one pointing to host1, one
pointing to host2 and one pointing to host3. The rest of the
configuration is associated to the last target, the others are sort of
dangling. A correct configuration for failover would be
suffixmassage "ou=dc1,dc=local" "dc=example,dc=com"
Note that URIs other than the first one cannot have the DN part (the same
of the first URI is assumed).
