It is not configurable, AFAIR.  It's by design, as the proxy struggles to
return as much information as possible while hiding problems at the remote
host side.  However I understand in some cases it might be preferable to
behave differently; something along the lines of the "onerr" directive for
slapd-meta(5).  I suggest you file an ITS <http://www.openldap.org/its>.
