In a Windows domain, we have a certain domain user that should be denied the right to log on to a specific PC (a domain member, of course). He should be allowed to work on all other domain members, however.

How do I configure that?

You can create a new GPO and through security filtering add the computer. Then deny this user deny login local access.

Since it a one user on a specific PC.

On the PC...
Create a group called Blocked Logons
Add the user to the group

By default in local gpo computer cfg>Windows Settings>Security Set>Local Plcy>UserRightsAssesment>logOnLocally
only gives logon rights to the following groups....
Admin, Backup Opr, Guest, Powerusr, Users (make sure the user is not part of these groups)
