No, a statement :-)

KDC stands for 'Key Distribution Center'

No, 'KDC' isn't simply 'Samba', Samba when running as a DC, is a KDC
and a dns & LDAP server. This means your Unix domain member needs to
run tools to use these and from the kerberos point of view, it doesn't
matter whether these tools are MIT or Heimdal, you just use the ones
that come with your distro.
