RFC 2256, 5.2.1. namingContexts
The values of this attribute correspond to naming contexts
which this server masters or shadows.
I should note that the next sentence could be taken to
mean that a LDAP server mastering no entries may have
no namingContexts attribute in the root DSE.
If the server does not master any information
(e.g. it is an LDAP gateway to a public X.500 directory)
this attribute will be absent.
Should s/master/hold/ to be consistent with preceeding line
and RFC 2251:
- namingContexts: naming contexts held in the server. Naming contexts
are defined in section 17 of X.501 .
Please note that verb "hold" (or variant) when applied to an
entry (or context), unless qualified, implies the server
contains either a master or shadow copy.
