Nothing at hand, at the moment. I was first waiting for you to confirm 
the issue. I think two distinct PRs are necessary here with two JBS issues?

Looking up error code 29 says KDC_ERR_SVC_UNAVAILABLE, obviously the AD DC server is maintenance mode. What bugs me is that KDC_ERR_SVC_UNAVAILABLE(29) is documented in Krb5.java, has an error message and KrbException.java does use it, but no error message is mapped to the code.
