We use SASL/GSSAPI/krb5 to authenticate clients to the LDAP server. If you want to load balance by using a common DNS name in front of all servers, you will need to deal with issues with krb5 authentication.
At the very least you should add keys to all servers for a principal named after the common name. However we do not test this scenario and I am not 100% sure it works correctly when you factor in that we use GSSAPI also for replication. Simo.
