Did you run ldap2bind after adding the machine?

Yes. I just expored that problem a bit more. Most if not all of the
DNS related errors after installation correspond to the failure of
debian-edu-ldapserver and/or the removeal of the multiple A-records:

We can either change some scripts that expect multiple A-records or
make Kerberos work with this multiplicity.

See above, ldap2bind ?! (A cron job does this every hour and at boot).
