When using ldapmodify to write to server1, it returns an ldap referral message.

For example:

# ./ldapmodify -R -p 52525 -D "cn=directory manager" -w <directory manager password>
dn: uid=kvaughan,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
replace: description
description: 123

modifying entry uid=kvaughan,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
ldap_modify: Referral received
ldap_modify: matched: dc=example,dc=com
Referral: ldap://<host>:<port>/uid=kvaughan,ou=people,dc=example,d=com

Server1 is a master and should not be referring updates.
