This is an absolute requirement. The server and client must both have
credentials in a common realm. If you can't use cross-realm authentication to
put them both in the same realm, then the server must exist in both realms.

Irrelevant. Kerberos does its own realm name management, sasl-realm only
affects DIGEST-MD5 and other mechs that don't support distributed
