IMO the manpages need a significant addition (mod -1/41)
by Matt Van Mater (188.8.131.52) on Fri Jul 16 20:20:19 2004 (GMT)
The manpages are listed here: http://www.openntpd.org/manual.html
In the last undeadly post about the new ntpd here: http://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20040710003102 It was mentioned that if you don't specify which ntp server you want to syncronize with, the prograsm will automatically choose 8 different stratum 2 servers to sync from. This very important feature is not listed in the manpages at all and I think they should be added.
Also, as a matter of curiosity, I'd like to see a blurb showing how the random 8 stratum 2 servers are chosen (a parsing of the list that Uni Deleware publishes?), and which ones you are currently configured to use.
This is still a really kickass thing. thanks guys!
