Can you elaborate on ³a firewall is flakey²? The hosts are physically
diverse, each side has 1 master, and 2 slaves, all 3 on the same subnet.
Even those connections are on and off. Is there any logging that can
explain why this would be happening?

Yes, that's what refreshAndPersist implies. The connections from the
replica should stay connected to the provider, unless the network is flaky,
a firewall is timing them out, etc. Or you stop/restart the slapd on
either side. ;)
