Modern afs utilities try to use the principal afs/<cell>@<REALM>, and if
it doesn't exist, they fall back to using afs@<REALM>. So those messages
are normal if you don't have an afs/<cell> princ. afs/<cell> is
considered preferable, as it allows you to run multiple cells with the
same realm, and since utilities try to use it first.
