Windows to Cygwin username mapping: Domain before local account when duplicate name?

Consider the case where you have a local account and a domain account
with the same username.

If you supply just the username to Windows without an authority name,
Windows returns the local account. To get the domain account, you'd
have to specify an authority (e.g. domain\username).

It seems like Cygwin looks up the domain account first.

Is this correct, or am I missing something? Is this by design?
