If you want to do SSO login (ie passwordless) you need that on.

Users may fail to name the server properly, or servers may not have
keytabs, what I suggest is for users to add exceptions in
their .ssh/config so that their client skips trying SSO auth for hosts
that are known to fail to provide it.

Something like:
Host fails.example.com
    User root
    GSSAPIAuthentication no
