If you're trying to do LOGIN (which I suspect is most likely), then the
problem is that the cyrus-sasl library is picking out the mechanism to
use based on what the server is saying it prefers, which is (in order of
most preferred to least preferred) GSSAPI, then NTLM, then LOGIN.

No, the SASL mechanisms listed in the AUTH keyword in the EHLO response are unordered.

The choice of mechanism to use is entirely up to the client. Cyrus-sasl tends to prefer GSSAPI over just about everything else, so if you don't want to use that you need to explicitly call out a different mechanism (as Ken pointed out).
