Right.  I misread the diff when I quickly had a look.  Pointing to
tjener should not be in conflict with the DNS spec.

I believe the sssd setup will actually copy the SRV pointed setting to
/etc/sssd/sssd.conf, and thus not work in this case.  For that to
work, the SRV records need to point to the service DNS name (like
ldap.intern), and we are back where we started.

Happy hacking,
