I don't believe this is possible; and a DC always requires write access
to the backend, so it probably just isn't feasible. You can configure a
local slapd an use OpenLDAP's very fine replication technology to just
have a DSA on every DC; which is pretty much what multiple PDC/BDCs
would have accomplished in a pure Microsoft solution.
