{{dtext ref= 1 Esdras 1:5}} does produce the expected text. However, this is the first time when a common reference has failed to work. The source of 3 Ezra 1:5 is Shouldn't the conversion occur automatically as in other Bible books with multiple names?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but "3 Ezra" is not a supported Bible book name. See

MJ, as you know Esdras/Ezra is a minefield. 3 Ezra is a weird way to reference it – an anglicised version of a Latin reference system. In Logos (rightly, in my view), the Vulgate datatype uses 3 Esdras to mean what you are calling 1 Esdras/3 Ezra. 

If you specify the datatype (vul2) in your dynamic text reference, then I think Logos might be able to understand 3 Esdras, even though that's not on the list of Bible books. But it will never understand 3 Ezra, because no Bible in Logos uses that nomenclature (at least not that I could find).
