  It defines the method, but doesn't make the module set Auth-Type to
that method.

  Modules having "authenticate" sections automatically have Auth-Type
definitions created based on their name.  This is normally the module
name (i.e. LDAP), unless the module has an *instance* name, in which
case it's the instance name.

  The LDAP module sets "Auth-Type" to it's *instance* name, not to
"LDAP".  That appears to be the piece you're missing.

  This has nothing to do with failover.
