the node are also Linux - or Windows?

Is it only this user? At least in NIS it can be set up, from which UID the NIS should deliver the users at all to the clients. For the lower ones the local users will be taken. Maybe it's similar in ADS.

I think it's not bound to some particular nodes, but depends on the load of the ADS server, or what they deliver. I saw this only once, when the NIS server in our case couldn't be contacted.
