If those LDAP servers have different sets of base objects each other,
you can do it like the example in

Otherwise it is not supported to get a search result from multiple LDAP
servers, in the current implementation. But I feel it is an interesting
application of LDAP-DeleGate.
It seems not difficult to try secondary server when primary server
returns a empty result. Also merging search results from multiple servers
seems not difficult.
