IIRC these 'reached' entries are created if name resolution is too slow
or failing. Then the last word of some error output like 'no servers
could be reached' is put into the file instead of the right server name.

Most probably the missing internet connection is the reason for the
failing name resolution. If i remember correctly I faced the same
problem some time ago.

Run 'debian-edu-test-install' and check the output. But I'm almost sure
that this 'reached' issue is the only wrong thing.

      cat ~/testreport_11_03_15 |grep '^error'

(This is before applying below mentioned fix)
You should be able to create the correct file this way:

(1) Enter the LTSP chroot: ltsp-chroot -a i386
(2) Run '/usr/share/debian-edu-config/tools/sssd-generate-config -k > /etc/krb5.conf
(3) Run 'exit' to leave the chroot.

    Did this. But, now clients fail to boot and stop at starting NTP server.
    So, reverted to old (ltsp-chroot)/etc/krb5.conf

    The file I get is indeed as below.

The content of /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/krb5.conf should be like this:
# Generated using /usr/share/debian-edu-config/tools/sssd-generate-config -k
        default_realm = INTERN

# The following krb5.conf variables are only for MIT Kerberos.
        krb4_config = /etc/krb.conf
        krb4_realms = /etc/krb.realms
        kdc_timesync = 1
        ccache_type = 4
        forwardable = true
        proxiable = true
