Problem when I use alias with deferencing option

I have a problem when I use the alias. I have an OpenLdap with 450.000 entries and 450.000 alias.
When I make a search using the deferencing I obtain a wrong result.
For example:
- if I search in the alias tree  uid=xxxx I obtain zero entry but I have the alias and I have the phisical entry
- if I search in the alias tree ou=xxxx I obtain a number of entries that is different from same search performed on the phisical tree
This happens only when I use the deferencing option.
I find in Internet that: "If you have a thousand or more alias objects, avoid alias
dereferencing in the search" .... this means I could get wrong results using alias?
Thanks in advance
