Actually, I just ran a test and, at least for refclock_bancomm, burst is
the only one that matters. However, even with 'burst', it would still
take 64 seconds for ntp to declare a peer if minpoll is not also
decreased. I attributed this to the fact that 'burst' only applies to
normal ops, so at least one "normal" polling period is required.
