As I understand things:

Samba4.2 and lower is designed for the Heimal (sp!) kerberos. 
Redhat/Fedora/Centos provides the MIT kerberos.  Thus Sernet provides a 
'proper' kerberos for these OS.  I saw that somewhere on some web writeup.

Samba 4.3, coming out 'real soon now', allows Samba to use the MIT kerberos.

But for now, no running on Centos with the Centos provided Kerberos.
