Can you try increasing this option:

       pam_id_timeout (integer)
           For any PAM request while SSSD is online, the SSSD will attempt to
           immediately update the cached identity information for the user in
           order to ensure that authentication takes place with the latest

           A complete PAM conversation may perform multiple PAM requests, such
           as account management and session opening. This option controls (on
           a per-client-application basis) how long (in seconds) we can cache
           the identity information to avoid excessive round-trips to the
           identity provider.

           Default: 5
