this could - and will- easily lead to communication problems.
so the normal setup will be:  smbd and slapd (on the same host) 
communicating internal over ldapi://,
replication traffic between the several slapds on the dcs only via 
ldap://<host>:<port> (port<>389),
samba-clients communicating to smbd-ldap-interface (389)
