pam_krb5 can't locate my KDC

I was just trying pam_krb5 for kicks but it can't find my KDC. My
/etc/krb5.conf is just:

        WIN.NET = {
                kdc =

[domain_realm] = WIN.NET = WIN.NET

I would think this should be sufficient no?

>From looking at a capture I can see it trying a TXT
lookup but even if I add a record for this with "WIN.NET" I see no
communication with the KDC.

Obviously I don't know what I'm doing. Can someone enlighten me?
