2008 R2 uses Kerberos v5 by default out of the box. Developers just need to code accordingly.

You can use wireshark to "watch" the authentication or just check the security logs of any domain controller. The log entries will indicate which authentication protocol is being used for users and computers. Look for event IDs of 4624 on 2008 and higher DCs.  They will have the "authentication package" that was used.  On 2003 DCs, look for event id 540.

Kerberos has been the default protocol for many years now, and falls back to NTLM only if kerberos fails.  

SharePoint needs to be set up properly for kerberos,  the domain controllers already support it.
