We run with DNS round robin for this: we have an ldap CNAME and
associate that with the Windows DCs. I guess you could even make a call
to DNS for the srv records of the DCs if you wanted to.

I guess one could accomplish a similar effect by specifying multiple
server entries ("My_LDAP1", "My_LDAP2", etc), which is messy but would
at least make sure things keep running if the primary becomes
unavailable.  Would this work?  The downside is that RT would make
multiple queries for users that are actuall invalid, but the benefits
might be worth it.  I will try to poke at this over the next few days.
