What's going to happen when all computers ship configured to talk to
pool.ntp.org?  Won't this then comprise the majority of all ntp users?
If the lookup doesn't return a working server and ntp doesn't repeat the
lookup until it does, that's not going to work.  If there's some
agreement on this, then can we talk about what the criteria should be to
redo the lookup?  Just to get the ball rolling - 8 failed polls?
