You scratch a really contentious itch. The PDF report you found was my 
submission to the NTP working group, but it is not in Postel ASCII as 
required by the IETF. The Postel ASCII is the .txt format you found, but 
it has not been formated as Postel ASCII yet. BOth documents are 
intended to describe the same specification; however, the .txt document, 
which has been wordsmithed somewhat from the PDF, is probably the 
definitive document.
