passwordhistory attribute is not updated

New Supplier Servers were added to the environment.    It was noticed that two accounts (and possibly more) had updated their passwords but the 'passwordHistory' attribute did not reflect the change. The password was updated and the users can use the new password.  It was subsequently discovered that the new servers did not have password history enabled in the Global Password Policy.  It has subsequently been enabled it to match the older server.

Would not having the password history enabled in a couple servers prevent (randomly, it seems) from recording the new 'passwordHistory' attribute to properly reflect that the password has been changed?
