Note: failover needs to not happen if a master is not defined...

I know, it seems obvious...

But also, it may be a good idea to make it optional, or to make failover
be more of a "try another KDC" option.

The client's behaviour shouldn't prevent/complicate the possibility of
having kadmind instances running on all the KDCs nor multi-master
