Consider a Windows laptop that is a member of domain and that is plugged
into a LAN that does not contain its domain controllers (e.g., at a LAN
party, a friend's house, a customer site, etc.).  In that case, I
suspect Windows will try to make the RPC calls.  What I'm not sure of is
whether the RPC calls will fail quickly or timeout after ~60 seconds.

I'm not able to test this, because I only have access to one LAN (the
one where my domain controllers exist).
