I would *so* much prefer to top-post the answer to this; folks with threaded
newsreaders (or people following this thread in the future) would have an
easier time, and the folks who object to the A/Q ordering could simply have
a bit of delayed gratification (like verbs in German language sentences?)
while folks who are "good" with context would not have to wade thru the
setup again.

Oh well.

See http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Dev/AutoconfIssues .

There are Legacy installation issues here and every time they have been
changed in the past the backlash has been Enormous.

That this issue (and so many others) is still present is another example of
why folks should join and support the NTP Forum.
