[cifs-protocol] Nameconflict with "ss" vs. "ß"

I found that objects with "ss" and "ß" in the DN conflict with each other.

If I create CN=User_ß,OU=test,DC=example,DC=com on DC1
and CN=User_ss,OU=test,DC=example,DC=com on DC2,

CN=User_ss,OU=test,DC=example,DC=com gets renamed to

Based on [MS-DRDR] MakeConflictDN.

Can you please explain/document why 'ss' and 'ß' are handled as the same?

As MS-DRDR is marked as hostoric, I'm wondering where the MakeConflictDN
section is documented? It's not in [MS-DRDM] - v20110504.
