[Freeipa-users] Config applied to SSSd

ipa-client-install on RHEL6-ish distro's configures SSSd as follows:

    ipa_server = _srv_, ldap01.my.domain

The man page isn't too clear on what is this value used for (or how ipa-client-install derives it in a multi-server deployment), or what would happen if ldap01 went offline.

Is anyone able to clarify the how the defaults behave?
