Windows does caching.

 1. login on network (domain login)
 2. authentication information (user/password(hash?) is cached)
 3. logout
 4. timespan of length x
 5. disconnect
 5. login at domain (against cached auth info)

So in short, if you once were logged in, you can login at (any?) later time 
without network (AFAIK this needs to be enabled somewhere, it's not default).
