I think there where opinions redarding this "bug" on this group, but
I'll repeat: it will be very useful for the ntpd to try to reload the
conf file from time to time and try to connect to servers listed there.
Now, when ntpd starts, it will try to connect to the servers listed, in
the order of their appearance in the ntp.conf file. If one server fail
to respond it will be eliminated for further checks. This will be very
usefull as on some systems (mostly on Windows machines).
