The DC is 'hostname', the realm is ad.example.com. I just pointed ldap 
at the realm to get the advantage(?) of being able to hit any DC.

As it turns out, what I described WORKS. I went back and checked my 
assumptions and realized that the reverse DNS didn't match - 
dc1.ad.example.com's PTR pointed back at dc1.office.example.com.

I had updated it on the DNS master for the internal zones, but bind on 
dc1 had *cached* the old PTR lookup.

Once I flushed, forward and reverse matched and it started working.

BUT, why didn't rnds=false fix this? :(
