If you have auditing turned on for the "Directory Service Access" event category, this will appear in the Security logs in the Event Viewer on your domain controllers.

Though it may be shutting the barn door after the horse has bolted where this particular incident is concerned, here is a step-by-step KB for configuring auditing of Active Directory objects: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/814595/

Hope this helps.
