    Before you 'max out' on replicas take into account several things:

    The more replicas you have the more threads there are trying to sync with the only master. And if you oversaturate things there's a higher likelihood some replicas will fall behind while others monopolize the master, particularly in a heavy write environment.

    Granted I have no insight as to your usage - I suppose if needed you could daisy chain replicas...

    Probably need at least one replica per 4 MTA's or per 8 mailstores. Just throwing guesses out there - there's lots more involved in calculating this and I have no clue on your number of users, mail traffic, planned hardware, or typical usage. (If you're a NE customer professional services can plan this out for you.)

    See this article on tweaking the number of threads & cache sizes: Zimbra_OpenLDAP_Server : Performance Tuning Guidelines for Large Deployments - Zimbra :: Wiki

    All that said there's some very cool stuff coming up on the radar soon: Bug 27872 - Support multi-master LDAP deployment > Bug 21991 - OpenLDAP 2.4 upgrade with BDB 4.7
