You can see the implementation of the weight selection here:

Even if you're not a C programmer, maybe the comments will show how we
follow the RFC. The intent of the code is to share the load from several
clients according to the sum of the weights on the same priority level.
So if you had two servers A and B with the same priority with weights
of 70 and 30 respectively, 70% of clients should select server A and 30%
should select server B.

There are several timeouts at play, depending on how exactly the server
is unreachable and what the provider is. For DNS resolution itself,
dns_resolver_timeout is applied. Once you have an IP address and start
connecting to an LDAP server, we try for ldap_network_timeout seconds.

There are different timeouts for Kerberos, you can see them all in the
sssd-ldap and sssd-krb5 man pages.
