I am interested in understanding what fails exactly, stuff should not
depend on reverse resolution can you give me an example of a failure ?

For the PTR creation anyway have you enabled the option to allow setting
PTR records ?
There is a global DNS option (As awell as per-zone setting) called
"Allow PTR Sync" you may want to enable.

When we attempt to login using kerberos on a machine that has no reverse DNS entry defined, we are instead prompted with a password prompt. The password authentication still works but the ticket does not.

From what I read, the Allow PTR Sync option is only used in conjunction with DNS IP address changes and does not apply to the initial join of the domain.

Is the joining process supposed to create reverse DNS entries for the clients or just forward entries and SSHFP entries?
