When I compare the ldap access logs with and without heartbeat, there is
a difference in the query.  As I previouslt mentioned, without
heartbeat, adding is successful, with heartbeat it is not.  The search
base is different:

With heartbeat - SRCH base="cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com"
scope=2 filter="(&(objectClass=sambaGroupMapping)(gidNumber=99))"
attrs="gidNumber sambaSID sambaGroupType sambaSIDList description
displayName cn objectClass"

W/heartbeat - SRCH

When I compared the logs when executing pdbedit -Lv with both setups,
the queries are the same.

Why would samba do a different query to the same instance of ldap when
configured with heartbeat and without heartbeat?

The address that samba is binding to/from for access to ldap is not the
VIP provided by heartbeat.
