[Samba] Samba PDC in many branch offices + one LDAP database - how
to change passwords?

I just configured Samba 3 PDC + LDAP.
The aim is to have a Samba 3 PDC + LDAP in each branch office; and there
should be one user/password database.
There are about 20 branch offices in different locations and users
travel a lot between them with laptops.
Each branch office has a below configuration:
- Samba 3 PDC
- slave OpenLDAP server
There is also one central user/password OpenLDAP (master) - changes in
it (added users etc.) are replicated to the slaves.
As it is relatively easy to have one LDAP database across all office
branches, I don't know how to make Samba 3 to read/retrieve
usernames/passwords from local OpenLDAP slave, but to write added
machines/changed passwords to the master OpenLDAP server (which would
then replicate the changes to all its slaves).
