It is actually not necessary to create all the SRV records in all domains.

Client auto-discovery is using the TXT record which is added automatically
and the _kerberos TXT record is like 'redirect'.

The procedure is:
- client client1.sub.example.com. searches for record
_kerberos.sub.example.com TXT
- _kerberos.sub.example.com TXT contains realm name "EXAMPLE.COM"
- now the client knows that all the SRV records are inside example.com. domain
- SRV records from example.com. are used from now on

AFAIK this is very standard Kerberos behavior so it should work for all
standard-compliant clients.
