This might work on the DNS level but the local hostname must match as
well, because services like e.g. sshd will search their keytab entries
with the help of the local hostname. It might be possible to configure
the services to use other keytab entries but I think it would be easier
to just move all hosts to a new domain then touching the configuration
of every single service.
