Did you create both host/server.domain01.com@REALM.COM and
host/server.domain02.com@REALM.COM SPNs? Google for "multihomed kdc". No
doubt people have explored this issue before.

But I think a bigger problem with multihomed systems ingeneral is
this will be the services that only accept principals with a hostname
matching that of the primary name of the local machine. Ideally all
services would support the concept of virtual hosting but I seriously
doubt they do consistently. Ssh might though, I don't know.
