In addition to Dmitri's comments (and mine in the "Forcing IPA clients
to prioritise different IPA Servers" thread) you should be aware that
just because you're not using FreeIPA as the DNS server, it doesn't mean
that you can't use SRV records to solve this problem.

The SRV records are looked up on whatever DNS server is configured
in /etc/resolv.conf. So if you ask your DNS administrator to add SRV
records for your FreeIPA replicas, you can still continue this way.

Otherwise, your best bet is to edit the sssd.conf directly (for now. As
Dmitri says, we're looking at other approaches for future FreeIPA
