Check the Group (in Active Directory), that they are asigned to.  If there individual account does not have time restrictions, perhaps the group does.

Check this link to be sure that the logon hours are correctly configured for the users.  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/archive/winntas/deploy/confeat/05wntpce.mspx?mfr=true
When the users are not permitted to logon, what events show in the security event log, check both pdc and bdc for events.

 Watch the Recording: Learning MySQL 5.7

MySQL 5.7 has a lot of new features. If you've dabbled with an older version of MySQL, it is definitely worth learning.

PDC and BDC will both process logon requests.  Depending on who responds first.  on the BDC, check that the timezone is set correctly (double click on clock on bottom right of the screen).  If it is correct, then goto a dos window and type "net time \\pdcname /SET"  (pdcname=your pdc name).  This will syncronize the two.  You may want to consider adding the command to your logon scripts.  In an NT domain environment, it is the best way to keep workstation clocks syncronized.  (net time \\pdcname /SET /Y).

If the PDC has correct time.
Enter it on the machine with the incorrect time. it will take the time of \\pdcname and set the machine it is run from to that time.
