Hello Andrews & Metze,

Can one of you have a look at 

It's the dirsync implementation, current implementation didn't deal with 
more than 1 DCs, more exactly if samba4 receive a cookie coming from 
another server it won't be able to deal with it and will return all the 
entries matching the expression, you can see this behavior with windows 
too if have 2 DCs (A and B) you just promoted B (so it hasn't sent it's 
uptodateness vector to A) when you query A you will see just its 
uptodateness vector.

I've tested it manually and with unit tests it's quite successful I get 
the same results as a w2k3r2 server when used with directory aggregation 
tool called MIIS.
