These are RHEL 6 machines. The users that has the crontab that's not run, was 
in NIS, and the same
account having the same UID/GID exists in IPA. Cron jobs for local accounts run 
as they did before
migrating to IPA.

Restarting the cron daemon solves the issue, and the cron jobs immediately 
starts running again.

Has anyone else seen this issue?

Running daemons cannot pick up changes to /etc/nsswitch.conf. They have
to be restarted. This is a long-standing bug in glibc (well, the glibc
upstream doesn't consider it a bug, but their users do).
Ok, thank you for the explanation.
