You probably have something like this in the clients smb.conf:

idmap config DOMAIN : unix_nss_info = yes


template homedir = /home/%U

The first will override the second, if unixHomeDirectory is set in AD.

If, on a specific client, you do not want the users Unix dirs to be the 
one set in AD, then do not add the first line to the clients smb.conf. 
You should be aware that it is one or the other for all users that 
connect to that Unix client, you cannot have both.
