how do you mean lockout?

My first thought is bad password for the user name... They might be triggering your security limit for a locked out password.

Is the user switching the domains at log-in?

Bob / pass / domain1
Bob / pass2 / domain2

... using the 2 credentials on 1?

We need more details:

What are the operating systems of the stations with login problems and servers?
Is there any error code?
Is there anything in Event Viewer on this error?
You can post the logs on attempts to logon event viewer?
