Linux does not care. Only Windows cares.

The posix name of the server does not matter. Nor does the DNS name
as it can have more than one DNS name. You need to work with Samba as
a somewhat separate entity. It is simply easier to match names up for
us humans. So....

Nope. See, the important thing is the "domain" name should be a
single simple short word. So the easiest bit would be:

  realm = SERVEUR-TPI.DOMAINE.CH -- domain =SERVEUR-TPI

BUT!!!!!! your kerberos realm does NOT have to match the machine name
either! So we could forget the *nix name completely and just for
simplicity:

--realm=SAMBA.DOMAINE.CH --domain=SAMBA
