That seems rather excessive. If you're using the Pool at all, then three
or so should be enough. (If you want better time keeping, use specific
servers rather than the Pool.)

As I understand it, the point of the Pool was to offer an easy way for
people to configure their clients, without needing to find addresses of
specific servers. If you've got explicit servers configured, then you're
unlikely to need the Pool as well.
