Moreless, it isn't trying to do it anonymously but as you said probably 
is a problem with credentials:

Mar  6 13:59:38 macallan slapd[4731]: conn=50 op=0 BIND 
dn="cn=Manager,dc=<MY DOMAIN>,dc=com" method=128

Binding as the manager but with a strange <MY DOMAIN> in the DN (that is 
repeated in the searches).

Mar  6 13:59:38 macallan slapd[4731]: conn=50 op=0 RESULT tag=97 err=49 

Then failing with an error 49, bad credentials (dn or password).

Have you configured correctly your smbldap_bind.conf or forgotten to 
configure some option related to the base dn in smbldap.conf?
