This is likely a symptom of larger Active Directory issues.  Start by rebuilding a GC with the commands below. If that doesn't resolve the issue for that site, then we'll need to start more in-depth AD troubleshooting.

Rebuild the Global Catalog on one of the servers.
REPADMIN /REBUILDGC DCName

Do this for a single site at a time.
