Perhaps you'd be able to find the definition of a Local Caution in FCOM EIS chapter. I think it is the individual buttons lighting up with 'FAULT' on them or similar.

Not all systems announce their issues through ECAM, some in the direct field of vision are still yours to pick up.

A nice example specific to your case - imagine the captain's ND going black with an amber message INVALID DISPLAY UNIT.

(ref. QRH 17.01A "Display Unit Failure")
