You didn't understand my question.

1) in each office, there is only one domain controller (costs), against 
which users authenticate and store roaming profiles (they are stored 
locally on their workstations, too)

2) if a local domain controller is down, they should be able to 
authenticate against a domain controller over VPN/WAN - but use local 
profile only.

How to prevent users from trying to retrieve/upload a profile to/from a 
given domain controller?

I can do it by putting some broken profile path on that domain 
controller, but then users when logging in see a window "their profile 
path can't be found, contact administrator etc.", which I want to avoid.
