I wonder if they fixed something in a the last few weeks.  One of my
net neighbors runs a -current open-nntpd and he is usually 200ms off
of real time.  All this on an enhanced DSL line.

His server also claims to be stratum-2 whether it is synchronized to
some high-numbered stratum or not.  Darn annoying.
