You could probably do this with OpenLDAP's syncrepl replication
facility.  You may also wish to consider combining everything into one
LDAP database, containing two different Samba domains, with a common OU
for user accounts.  You could keep the LDAP servers as they are, just
set up one as a secondary LDAP server using syncrepl.  That would have
the advantage of centralizing everything and ease user administration,
since users created in one domain would automatically be included in both.

Without knowing the specifics, however, it's hard to say to which way
would be best.
