There seems to have been one more required step. After making the 
/etc/requestkey.conf it seems I had to manually mount and then unmount 
the home share

nas> mount -t cifs //nikita.mhome.nurdog.com/home /home -o 
nas> umount /home

and then after a reboot the automount worked. I think this is a CentOS 
6.4 issue ... maybe software that is too old? If I begin to have issues 
I think I am just going to stick with the nfs mount.
