Is there any configuration where you can modify or configure how long password should be cached or do you have any apps which syncs the password,

if yes, how often...??

 How is the replication configured or is there any issue with the replication between the DC's. The issue can be due to replication also.

You can disable the cache logon see this

Cached and Stored Credentials Technical Overview
If you have multiple domain controllers then it takes some time to replicate to other domain controllers.  So the authentication might be happening from a Domain Controller before its replicated from the domain controller where the password change happened.

Dear PeteLong

it's very helpful article but still i missing understand this key values :

On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value Name: UserTokenTTL (Note This is case-sensitive!)
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value Range: 0 - 0x7FFFFFFF (Note This unit is in seconds.)

how many seconds it will takes ?

also i need to make this with all integrated applications not Exchange only ,
