Changing password in alfresco with ldap

I have successfully added ldap-ad to Alfresco. Now when i am creating a user in AD, it is synchronized with Alfresco and i got an Alfresco user in ECM. The question is, if a user Bob (that has been sync from AD) changes his password, in which authentication system will it change, Alfresco or AD?

If the password will be changed in AD, then i have no other querstion, but as far as i know, there is only one direction sync, from AD to Alfresco, so Alfresco cant access the AD passwords and change them. Does this mean, that Alfresco will create a password for Bob and store it in her authentication system and now Bob can loggin with alfresco and AD passwords? And most important question: How to avoid that? Thanks in advance.
