In a Windows 2003 AD Environment, I'd like to understand relationship between default domain Policy, and User Account Settings. The perfect example would be : I establish a Default Domain Policy restricting logons for office hours, but on specific cases Maybe I'd need to override this policy for a certain user. What if I go to his account properties and give him afterhours logon permission ? would it override Default Domain Policy ?

Logon hours are defined on a per-user basis, not via GPO. The only GPO setting that relates to logon hours is "forcibly disconnect users when logon hours expire".

Password and account lockout policy are set at the domain level and cannot be overridden. All other GPO settings in the Default Domain Policy adhere to normal Group Policy processing rules, as described here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc785665.aspx

Or if you want to (in future) something not to apply to a group of users, create a separate container and move the users there. Have a separate domain policy for that group and all other can have the default domain policy.
