I assume that by "special user" you are talking about binding with your 
if so, no, it isn't necessary.  Be sure and browse through:
If you are referring to the horde admin user, it only uses ldap for 
authentification like all other users and requires an entry in 
horde/config/conf.php like:
  $conf['auth']['admins'] = array('<silver at ultrasoft.ee>');
in your horde/config/conf.php assuming that you are using mail for ldap 
auth if not it is your user name.

Hope that helps,
