I am in an environment where the path to and from a
time server can vary from milliseconds to a second and
the return path may vary within the same range.  The
transit time for each direction will be independent of
the time for the other.  Thus the path to the server
may take a few mills but the return path can take a
second.  The sum of both paths can range from a few
mills to seconds.

Will this cause ntpd problems with accuracy or
stability or will the ntp calculations not be

I have had several discussions about this and need
someone who is more familar with the actual
calculations to help me out.
