You should be able to specify them as a list

ldap server = ldap1 ldap2 ldap3

Though that was for 2.2, looking at my 3.0 confs I've got

passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://ldapX which is local to the PDC/BDC

you probably want

passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap://ldap1 ldap://ldap2"

I think the quotes are important.
