They may have the same name and password as a domain user, but they are
different users.
An AD domain has a SID, it is this that identifies the domain.
Your users PC's will also have SID, but it will be different from the
domain SID.

So, when they connect, they need to connect as the other user, even if
it appears to be the same user.
