  That's good.

  The server can't do proxying *and* local authentication at the same time.  But with a bit of minor configuration, it should work.

  The simple solution is to *not* set Auth-Type = LDAP.  You should be able to do something like:

authorize {
	ldap.authenticate	# run LDAP bind
	if (ok) {
		update control {
			Proxy-To-Realm := "realm"
