I wouldn't worry about it, NSS uses /etc/passwd & /etc/group first, so
the local 'nobody' will be found first, just don't use '65534' as an
AD uidNumber (or gidNumber)

If it really does worry you, just change '65534' to what red-hat uses
'99', there must have been a reason why debian used '65534', but I
have never found it.
