Start with your DC and look at the security logs. Filter on 'Audit Failure'. Start looking for unsuccessful attempts. If he's getting locked out because someone else is hammering the login, some unsuccessful attempts should be showing up.

If you have more than one DC, you may need to look at them all. But you could also run the %logonserver% command to identify which domain controller the user used and start from that DC's security logs.

I agree. It's entirely possible that someone else is trying to use his credential.
