Local users searched in ldap

I'd like to prevent my client search local users in LDAP if they were found locally.

the Linux client searches local accounts (ie. root) in my OpenLDAP server even if the required informations were found in /etc/passwd, /etc/group. My nsswitch.conf says:

passwd: files ldap
shadow: files ldap
group: files ldap

How to fix this problem???
