The "Tally Codes" (*, +, -, etc.) are documented in the "Talley Codes"
section of http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/ntpq.html

Here's a few of them:

*  sys.peer
    The peer has been declared the system peer and lends its variables
    to the system variables. Note: you can only have one sys.peer

+  candidate
    The peer is a survivor and a candidate to be the sys.peer

-  outlyer
    The peer is discarded by the clustering algorithm as an outlyer.
