Questions specific to Kerberos (including interoperability with MS'
version) probably ought to go to the newsgroup comp.protocols.kerberos .

Actually I have commented that realm out of /etc/krb5.conf, since recent
releases of MIT Kerberos are able to track down the KDCs via DNS SRV
records just as Microsoft ADS clients do.  (I still had an active
domain_realm map entry for the ADS domain, but I have now commented that
out and it made no difference.)
