Very fine indeed... several times we have been forced to switch off the 
master for maintenance and  500 concurrent users logs as a charm in the 
domain only with the slave up.

Our architecture is more or less:

PDC     |    BDC1
LDAP virtual IP HA
master  |  slave(s)

but if you don't have an HA system, you can set several servers in the 
smb.conf (or round robin in the DNS) and runs fine: samba and the ldap 
libraries provides reconnection and so...
