 Or, is OK.

LDAP connections are quite stable. Again, this check is there to respect 
the commons-pool API contract. If the connection is dead, then doing 
this check will let the pool fetching another connection, which is good. 
OTOH, if you don't want to check connections while fetching one, then 
you are on your own (ie, deal with the consequences of a bad connection).

Usually, under heavy charged systems, it's better not to check 
connections, except on exceptional conditions:
* if the connection works, well, you are good to go
* if it fails, it's time to activate contingency plans (here, try to 
borrow another connection from the pool)

You are very much likely to fell in the first situation.
