You could try /etc/krb5kdc/kadm5.acl instead -- at least that's what
is set up in kdc.conf.template (ends up as /etc/krb5kdc/kdc.conf after
postinst has run) as default:

   acl_file = /etc/krb5kdc/kadm5.acl

(not sure though, if the linuxjournal article suggested a different
directory layout..., so YMMV)
