[Samba] Redundant ldap idmap backend possible?

Hi, I have just started to turn my Linux boxes over to use winbind for
authentication and ldap based idmap backend servers (open-ldap). As far as I
understand the documentation (for version 3.0.23c) it is only possible to
specify one ldap server, mine config line looks like: 


idmap backend = ldap:ldap://idmap.xelerated.com


I did try to map the idmap.xelerated.com entry in DNS to two servers, but it
only uses the first entry returned from the DNS-servern.


I want my environment to work even if one of the LDAP-servers goes down, how
do I make implement redundancy?
