As an AD DC, we don't use it.

Sure, but that is not used by the AD DC.

I'm not disputing that the OP may have copied the keytab.  It still
won't change what path the Samba AD DC will use.

That won't change Samba to use /etc/krb5.keytab as an AD DC, nor should
it.  It might impact if NFS is in operation, but that is a secondary
task at this point. 

I'm being so blunt because:
 - Samba is internally inconsistent on this point
 - Samba folklore spreads like wildfire
