Okay so the following steps reproduce the issue.

On machine A:
1.) install mysql-server
2.) Edit the bind-address field in /etc/mysql/my.cnf so that machine B 
can connect.
3.) Bounce the server.
4.) Set up a user that could be used from machine B.

On machine B:
1.) Make sure that no server is installed and no /etc/mysql/ directory 
2.) Install mysql-client
3.) Try to connect to the MySQL server on A using the account created 
for that purpose.

The solution should be to have a file like /etc/mysql/conf.d/.keepme in
