Sorry! My server tells me that it ldap did not find a correct matchup,  
but then returns true.

[ldap] performing search in cn=Users,dc=ds,dc=saintjoe,dc=edu, with  
filter (samaccountname=jwn6657)
[ldap] looking for check items in directory...
[ldap] looking for reply items in directory...
WARNING: No "known good" password was found in LDAP.  Are you sure  
that the user is configured correctly?
[ldap] user jwn6657 authorized to use remote access
[ldap] ldap_release_conn: Release Id: 0
++[ldap] returns ok

It also then continues to search through other forms of  
authentication, and then it seems to return false to the remote device  
if any of these are false.

The remote device also told me that the authentication was invalid. I  
was able to successfully authenticate on this device by using the  
local users file(on the radius server).
