As far as I know it is for ranking: A server should be better quality, a peer 
can be equal quality.

Here we have the systems grouped: our inside time-servers use the outside 
servers as server and each-other as peer. Then the other machines, they are 
grouped and as such peer each-other (max 4 or 5 in a group) and the time-servers 
as server.
