Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed to contact the active directory (0x8007054b)

I have Office Communicator Server 2007 installed and working fine internally.  I don't have plans to have external users.  However, when laptops are taken offline, they still try to connect and they are getting a "Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed to contact the active directory (0x8007054b)" error in the event viewer and a "There was a problem verifying the certificate from the server" error on the screen.  I know the laptop cannot contact the internal CA, but is there anyway to prevent this error from popping up with laptops are offline?
