Because it's an invalid syntax.  In the windows world it's 
DOMAIN\username, end of story.  Also, is your windows domain named 
domain.com (substituting real values of course) as opposed to just 
domain?  If so you're probably also seeing plenty of errors with joined 
machines looking for DNS entries that would only exist in an LDAP setup.
