      Description

      The gory details are in docs.ldap.com/specs/rfc2782.txt

      tl;dr: Rather than hard coding an ldap server one can use SRV records to look up which ldap servers are available. This is of course only relevant if there's more than one. FreeIPA and Microsoft's AD provide these resource records automatically for load balancing and high availability reasons.
      One looks up _ldap._tcp.yourdomain.com and picks the one with the highest priority (lowest number) and weight (highest number).
