Well, I guess this user also exists in the domain, not just in the local
password database, no?  If you have overlapping account names between the
local Unix database and the Windows domain, and you want the local accounts
to *only* ever authenticate using the local information, then you should
structure your PAM config so that Unix is listed first.

I didn't notice any errors in your config, otherwise; i.e., it looks like
you have things correctly structured such that usernames that *only* exist
locally can only be authenticated via pam_unix, and will therefore have to
deal with the password aging.
