There is no openLDAP support for the Samba AD DC (yet). Nadezhda Ivanova
is working on that, but as far as I know, there's no plan when this will
be part of an official release.

Here's a presentation from Nadezhda:

* You can set up a second DC (recommended anyway) to have a failover.
Then you don't have to worry if one goes down. By the way, there is no
"PDC" in an AD. All are DCs.

* You can write a script that exports stuff from AD and pushes it to
your openLDAP on your mailserver.
