If you use winbind for NSS, it will look up users and groups
opportunistically, make up a uid/gid for them as it goes, and cache the
results so they remain consistent, but only consistent on that one

If you want consistent results across the network, use nss_ldap pointed
at your AD server(s).  You'll need the SFU schema applied, but it sounds
like you've done that.
