I worked out how to set up debug for sudo. sudoers_debug is deprecated now, but
I created /etc/sssd.conf with a line
Debug sudo /var/log/sudo_debug all@debug
and I saw this in the debug output:

The problem is that the hostname command on the client was returning a short
hostname, ipaclient21, instead of a FQDN, ipaclient21.testdomain21.com and when
I forced the hostname to be the FQDN the sudo command worked.
The short hostname comes from the fact that the client machine is an openstack
instance, and that appears to be a feature of openstack instances :(
