Create a GPO that only applies to the RD servers, configure the User policy to block drives, then use Loopback Policy Processing to merge User settings. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/231287 has more info

Loopback policy processing causes the user policies of all GPOs linked to the same OU to apply to users that log in to computers in the OU. It's usually best to segregate your RD servers in their own OU to ensure the policies only apply to users of those systems and not others.
