Why is a new user added to my local address book instead of in the personal name and address book?

I'm at a loss for why in the last few days, when I create a new user, the person document is added to my local address book rather than the personal name and address book. There is also no record created in certlog.nsf.
Within the Domino Admin program, check the setting Configuration / Use Directory On. Perhaps you have this set Current Server (which can mean the local machine) rather than the real admin server. Also check your Notes location document, to make sure you are connected to the network and not running as an island.
