I agree with everything Corinna wrote (just back from a long trip).
The drawback of implementing a "lenient" version is that, without special 
edits of /etc/group, some site-dependent "mysterious" failures might
happen when disconnected.
Why not use a local account for sshd and cron?

Jason, can you telnet into the machine as a domain user when disconnected
from the PDC for a long time? If so are the groups (from id) the same as
when you are connected (working with an /etc/group that includes the domain 
groups)? (just curious).
