The clients only need to communicate with AD during authentication and
only for password authentication. Since the authentication is Kerberos
based port 88 should be open and although typically it is sufficient for
Kerberos to use UDP in the AD case we need TCP as well because AD
Kerberos tickets are too large for UDP due to the PAC data in the
ticket. If you want to allow password changes you have to open port 749
as well.

For the trusted domain SSSD delegates everything including finding a
suitable KDC to libkrb5. If 'dns_lookup_kdc = true' and no realm
definition is available for the AD domain in /etc/krb5.conf libkrb5 will
do a SRV query for _kerberos._tcp.ad.domain (no sites or other AD
specific options).  If you want to restrict the AD servers the clients
want to talk and keep the holes in the firewall small I would suggest to
add the AD realms to /etc/krb5.conf which only contains the KDC the
clients should talk to.
