I would not add this patch for this reason. I don;t think it will add
any substantial delay to SSSD as searching for SRV when they do not
exists will get back an immediate response.
I think the main issue we may face here is when someone installs an
sssd client and there is also an AD domain around and SRV records point
to it.
Perhaps we should provide a manual flag to disable using dns records ...
