NSCD not caching shadow user credentials is a fact. There is nothing wrong
with your configuration. NSCD just does not do what you seem to expect
from it. You can't make it what you like to.

If your LDAP server is gone, you will not be able to login. Run a replica
server to avoid a single point of failure.
