In all cases on both system pam_unix comes before pam_sss. For example in
Fedora system-auth it is:
auth [success=done ignore=ignore default=die] pam_unix.so nullok
auth requisite pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 1000 quiet_success
auth sufficient pam_sss.so forward_pass
and in Ubuntu common-auth it is:
auth [success=2 default=ignore] pam_unix.so nullok_secure
auth [success=1 default=ignore] pam_sss.so use_first_pass
I tried reversing the lines and get a pam error about user not know (it is
an AD user which works fine on fedora).
Also, it looks like pam_pkcs11.so is used in smartcard-auth on Fedora.
Don't know if this is relevant or not.

How does your PAM configuration looks like? You have to make sure that
pam_sss.so is the first module called for SSSD users. If pam_unix comes
first it will ask for a Password and pass it on to pam_sss.so which will
try password authentication in this case.
