This file is generated by SSSD and tells the IP address of a KDC that
the SSSD discovered to libkrb5. The reason is that you want applications
that rely on Kerberos configuration only (for example kinit) to be able
to use the KDCs SSSD uses without having to duplicate information in
both sssd.conf and krb5.conf and also make sure that both sssd and
libkrb5 really talk to the same server.

The file is normally generated when SSSD goes online after startup and
should be removed either when SSSD goes offline for one reason or
another or when SSSD is shut down.

If the file was around even if SSSD was not running, then I'd say it was
a bug. But I admit I haven't read this whole thread, so I'm not 100%
what was going on before.
