I'm sure you'll get other recommendations according to the preferences
of each of the respondents.  Personally, though I admire how far the
Heimdal team have come, I think it's hard to ignore the head start
advantage the MIT implementation enjoys, and I've found it very easy to
integrate with my Operating System of Choice.  Actually, it helps that
my OS of Choice comes with packages hand-made by someone very close to
MIT KRB5 development. <shrug>

Never having gone so far as to fully populate a Heimdal KDC with
principals I wanted to keep, I have no idea what the migration path to
an MIT KDC looks like.
