Yes, this is known issue for transitive trusts. MIT Kerberos requires
for non-hierarchical trusts that [capaths] section contains proper map
of relationships between the realms. We've got an API to manage this map
from IPA KDC driver and we also write it down on the IPA masters with
the help of SSSD for KDC to use but on IPA clients it is not generated
as we hoped that receiving referrals from KDC would be enough.

You can see that this is the issue by copying
/var/lib/sss/pubconf/krb5conf.d/domain_realm_linux_acme_example_com to
your client and placing it as

On next authentication attempt things will work.
