Now, like I suggested in a previous email in this thread, what you probably want is mirror mode and chaining. Mirror-Mode sets up a single master with a mirrored failover master that will take over after a heartbeat monitor failure. Setting up chaining on the replicas causes any modifications made to them to be forwarded to the master.
And even with a single master and chaining write operations from the slaves to the master you can experience funny issues with LDAP client applications which immediately reads data after writing it. Been there, done that, learned my lesson (with a PKI product of a "leading vendor").
