A client may send a domain controller two unnecessary Kerberos “Ticket-Granting Server” requests. This behavior occurs when, under certain situations, the response from a domain controller to a “Ticket-Granting Server” request from a client may indicate an error, such as the following ( the error can only be seen from the network trace):
Server account not found
The client may then send two more “Ticket-Granting Server” requests, and the domain controller then generates two more responses. Those two extra requests are not necessary.
