Sorry about the earlier mail, I was looking at the wrong code. 
but I still cant find anything related to admin_server lookup using DNS. 

And I think it says that the admin.html that the admin_server is not complete. 
But the kpasswd_server is implemented.

The draft is implemented in MIT Kerberos, Heimdal and Win2000/XP
