Please note that the Samba 3.5.9 release notes have been extended after
the release. The following paragraph on the changed Kerberos behaviour
has been added for clarification:

New Kerberos behaviour

A new parameter 'client use spnego principal' defaults to 'no' and
mean 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.
