[ntp:questions] Re: NTP Stats within norm?

Picked up a GPS receiver. Once I have the Fudge factor set, I will cut-over 
to stratum 2's. I am using some of the 1's for determining what my fudge 
factor needs to be...

One question though, would it help the Stratum 2's if I connected in PEER 
mode, or is this not recommended?

Thanks for everyone's patience in helping me through this!
