Has the entry dn= sambaDomainName=ATWORK,dc=atworkpersonnel,dc=com 
replicated across to your slave
ldap server successfully?

Check your ldap logs on the slave, I think samba does a lookup for the 
domain and adds it if it doesn't exist, otherwise
is the updateref set in your slaves slapd.conf file?  If the slave ldap 
server is telling samba it doesn't accept changes but
not telling it where to send changes ( no update referral) you might get 
this problem.

Hope this helps
