Is that the only message logged to the "secure" and "messages" files?

Well, if the problem isn't the permissions on the files and your server 
is set to allow only public key and Kerberos (GSSAPI) logins, then the 
obvious thing to check would be that you have the right key in that NFS 
mounted home directory.  Are you sure it's the same as the one in the 
local home directory?
