KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type & cron

Running as cron, I get error msg in mail: KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type,
even though the ftp does work. Can anyone explain this? Is there a way to stop it?

35 6 * * 1-5 ./PSS/ >> ./PSS/pss.log

/usr/kerberos/bin/ftp -v -n << _EOF_
