+The impact of 'client use spnego principal = no' is that Samba will
+use CIFS/hostname to obtain a kerberos ticket, acting more like
+Windows when using Kerberos against a CIFS server in smbclient,
+winbind and other Samba client tools.  This will change which servers
+we will successfully negotiate kerberos connections to.  This is due
+to Samba no longer trusting a server-provided hint which is not
+available from Windows 2008 or later.  For correct operation with all
+clients, all aliases for a server should be recorded as a as a
+servicePrincipalName on the server's record in AD.  (For this reason,
+this behavior change and parameter was also made in Samba 3.5.9)
 The impact of 'send spnego principal = no' is to match Windows 2008 and
 not to send this principal, making existing clients give more consistent
