There is no requirement for ldap to be listed first, it works fine with "files 
ldap" or similar more complex setups (like "files ldap [NOTFOUND=return] db".

 The order in which to list them would be up to site-specific requirements 
(but, I prefer to have 'files' first, it is one of the many things to consider 
if you have a requirement for local authentication to work in the case of LDAP 
being unavailable for whatever reason).
