For IPv4:
In theory, if your network is in ideal state and no service ever goes down
(unrealistic), it should work.

In practice, you will be observing long timeouts from time to time because the
clients will not be able to immediately detect that a service is down and
quickly fail-over to another server.

For IPv6: The network will totally break.

For IPA servers, please see

For IPA clients, please see

For AD trusts, please see

IPA & AD clients in cross-forest trust need to be able to communicate with IPA
and AD servers at least for Kerberos, but I would not bother with filtering
these specifically. Take them as clients joined to both realms.
