That's the way I read the original question, too and if it's the case,
then it's pretty much how SSSD's domains behave.

so if you had in sssd.conf:
    domains = dom1, dom2
Then a query for a username would first look into dom2. If the user was
found, it would be returned to the NSS stack and dom2 wouldn't be
queried at all. If there are conflicting names, however and you want to
go straight to dom2, you need to qualify the names:
    getent passwd user@dom2
