OK. But with the order specified in the example above (slave and then
master), will samba contact first the slave and then the master if needed
I mean, let suppose i have the 'passdb backend' defined above. If samba
need to modify something, is the operation procedure like this :
1) samba contact the first ldaps server mentionned in 'passdb backend',
   ie the slave server
2) samba try to update the directory : that fail
3) samba try to contact the second ldap server mentionned in 'passdb
   backend', ie the master
4) samba try to update the master directory : succes
5) all next operations will be done first with the slave ldap server

Is that the good senario ?
