If you do not have them set in /etc/nsswitch.conf, then NSS will not use 
them and if you set them as your example, only the local files will be 
used, nothing from AD. Try it like this:

passwd:         files winbind
group:          files winbind
shadow:         files
gshadow:        files

hosts:          files dns

bootparams: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files

ethers:     files
netmasks:   files
networks:   files
protocols:  files
rpc:        files
services:   files

netgroup:   files

publickey:  nisplus

automount:  files
aliases:    files nisplus
