This all depends on what you mean by 'login', if you mean when a client
logs into a Windows machine and authenticates from the DC, then
removing the links should stop your error.
If you mean that your Windows clients try to log into the DC, then they
cannot because of the login shell set '/bin/false', again removing the
links will stop this because they will no longer be recognised by the
Unix OS.

Of course, the error message can be ignored, it is meaningless, it is
just tell you it cannot do something, that it really shouldn't be
doing anyway ;-)
