assuming you want to lock out the local administrator, this article will show you how:

you should carefully consider the potential consequences of this though.

Do you mean that if password of local administrator is being typed wrongly few times, that account should be locked ? It should be available by default, when you have specified domain password policy. The only one account which is not affected is Administrator in built-in container in the domain (domain administrator)

Regards,
Krzysztof
