SSH and short-name machine credentials

When SSH with Kerberos authentication is used, how can destination hosts
with short-name machine credentials be accessed?
For example, when the destination host has machine credentials in the
form "host/<host>.<domain>@<REALM>" accessing it with SSH is no problem.
However, when it's "host/<host>@<REALM>" it doesn't and the SSH client
gives the following error:
debug1: Unspecified GSS failure. Minor code may provide more information
Server host/<host>.<domain>@<REALM> not found in Kerberos database
Is the only solution here to not use short-name machine credentials?
