The question is phrased such that I'm not sure whether you correctly 
understand the kerberos model; if not, 
http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/dialogue.html may be enlightening.

The KDC sources are in the src/kdc/ directory of the distribution; the 
code in dispatch.c determines how to process incoming requests.  Most of 
the time, a client's invocation of kinit ends up in do_as_req.c.
