I just restarted ntpd on my home server and observed something a little 

I have all the network servers configured to use iburst.  One of the 
network servers was awarded a "*" within fifteen or twenty seconds but 
ntpq showed the "reach" field as "1".  Shouldn't the ntpq output reflect 
the results of the eight request packets sent out at startup; e.g. 
shouldn't the reach field read "377"?
