It's:  persistent = n

What is the time, seconds, minutes,.....

Seconds. See `perldoc ldirectord`

What would be a good expiration time, 5 minutes?

Depends where you're going to use it for. If you have clients who want to be
able to connect to one server, use the "Disconnect Session" option of the
(Windows Terminal Server) service and connect later to their session again,
you'll have to determine how much time 'later' is and use that as your
persistent value ;)  If you want to be sure they can always connect back,
use the maximum time somebody can be in the office. Of course this all fails
when they connect from a different IP address.
