[Samba] Unable to join domain?

I tried the -k, and no go. If I just put -k at the end it says -k needs 
a paramater. Looking in the man page it says -k KERBEROS, so I did, and 
now samba-tool says "samba-tool dns zonecreate: error: invalid -k option 
value: KERBEROS"

I am completely unfamiliar with Kerberos, so if this is a stupid 
mistake, forgive me.
