without knowing more details one cannot really comment on this. Just wild guesses:
Something related to DNS?
Or referral chasing? (MS AD returns referrals)
Did you try to turn off automatic referral chasing?
Is the time measured only the call to connection.search_s() or does it include
connecting to the server?
Which is the search base? The search filter?
