The Heimdal version identifies itself as 1.5.2. The main problem is that

1.5.2 is quite old and, IIRC, I've seen this before. You can work
around it by adding the kdc name with a dot at the end as an alias in
the hosts file.
Thank you very much. That trick did it. It's weird, though. I would have
likely never arrived at the same solution by myself.
FreeBSD appears unwilling to update the base system heimdal as it has
been the same for several releases already. I have no idea why.
