Summary:
CKContainer.default().fetchUserRecordID returns 'No iCloud account is configured' (code error 9) if the iCloudDrive is DISABLED but the user is logged into iCloud. This is a bug as the UserRecordID should return if the user is logged into iCloud anyway. 

iCloudDrive should only be required when we need to make use of the disk space in iCloudDrive.

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to get the iCloud UserRecordID.

Expected Results:
CKContainer.default().fetchUserRecordID() { recordID, error in
            if let userID = recordID {
//This should get called if user is logged into iCloud, even if iCloudDrive is disabled.
                print("fetched ID \(userID.recordName)")
            } else if let error = error as NSError? {
print("Error Code:", error.code, "Error Description:", error.localizedDescription)
            }
        }

Observed Results:
CKContainer.default().fetchUserRecordID() { recordID, error in
            if let userID = recordID {
                print("fetched ID \(userID.recordName)")
            } else if let error = error as NSError? {
//This get called if iCloudDrive is disabled. Even if the user is logged into iCloud.
print("Error Code:", error.code, "Error Description:", error.localizedDescription)
            }
        }

Version:
iOS 10.3.2(14F89)
It also happens in iOS 9.3 but the error message is:  "This request requires an authenticated account"
