The product polls the server once every 3 days. There is a field for an end
user to insert up to three time servers, but they require an IP address
instead of a DNS name, a shortcoming of the reference design upon which the
software was built. The default values in there were for StratumOne servers
and that needs to be changed.
I'm currently experimenting with a solution that would allow DNS names to go
into that field instead of hard coded IP addresses.
