Multiple "kdc =" stanzas; clients will use each in turn.

Also useful are round-robin DNS entries, especially for sites large
enough to have significant load on the KDC.  We have three A records for
"kerberos.ece.cmu.edu", one for the primary and one for each slave;
clients are configured to use kerberos.ece.cmu.edu first, then the
master, then the slaves.
