Bug 17373236 - LDAP - DOES NOT REACH FAILOVER/LOADBALANCED SECOND ADDRESS
You can bypass this by using advanced url syntax:
You can use advanced url to use the syntax
There is thick/oci syntax as well(from an old post - requires additional oracle client install)
We're running from the primary server again, so if it becomes a problem next time I'll try the advanced url.

Bug 14761950 - ADVANCED THIN URL FAILS WITH OCI CHECKBOX ON
Is this your issue:
with ldap entry with two host names (for failover):
-with oci switch on -> only tries first one
-with oci switch off (i.e. it uses thin) -> tries both
This would confirm the bugs are related, and provide you with a workaround.
we need to have oci switch on as we need it for SSO, but if we have it on, then it will not try all servers on the LDAP entry...
how do we have SSO and failover configured on the LDAP?
