SharePoint: wrong domain name after user profile synchronization

If there is a NetBIOS domain name, the user profile synchronization in SharePoint will give incorrect results, because the users will be prefixed with the domain name (for example: "AD" in "ad.mycompany.com") instead of the NetBIOS domain name (for example: "MYCOMPANY-AD").

This problem is described well in WRONG DOMAIN NAME IN ACCOUNTNAME AFTER USER PROFILE SYNC.

The solution is to change the property of the User Profile Application to the value 1, and then recreate the connection and do a full synchronization.

This topic is described in the Microsoft Technet article Synchronize user and group profiles in SharePoint Server 2013.
