If the WAN is not a single netbios scope, then just set up each remote
DC as a PDC, otherwise configure as a BDC per the documentation.

In any case, the replication stuff happens only at the OpenLDAP layer,
and the procedure for setting this up is all described in the docs - the
main site is the OpenLDAP master, and the remote sites are OpenLDAP
