[Samba] Question about LDAP migration...

Yesterday I started to build a test network to evaulate our planned move to
Samba 3.0.14 and Debian. I started off by duplicating our LDAP directory.
On the exisiting Samba PDC/LDAP master machine, I did:
slapcat -v -l old.ldif
I put the 'old.ldif' file onto a floppy disk, went to the lab's server and
slapadd -v -l /media/floppy/old.ldif
The process stopped on the "Administrator" user complaining about error No.
65, "No Structural Object Class Provided". I took a look at the LDIF file
and compared my normal user account to that of the Administrator account.
The only difference between the two were the following lines:
Both of these lines were missing from the Administrator account's
definition. I was able to add just the 'objectClass: account' line to the
definition and the import process worked fine after that.
My question is this: My existing LDAP directory doesn't have thais
definition and I'm able to use the Administrator account without problems.
So, why am I getting this error? Additionally, what impact will this change
have (if any)?
The unmodified Administrator LDAP definition:
gecos: Netbios Domain Administrator
sambaAcctFlags: [U ]
sambaLMPassword: [ *** REMOVED *** ]
sambaNTPassword: [ *** REMOVED *** ]
userPassword:: [ *** REMOVED *** ]
