The default for Kerberos telnet as shipped in the MIT distribution is to not
do authentication. You have to explicitly use the -a flag to request an
authenticated session.

If you are using -a and you still get a password prompt, the chances are
good that you're not talking to a Kerberos telnet daemon for some reason.
