Your Usenet client (combination of your email program and the list to
Usenet gateway) has broken MIME quoted-printable handling, with the
result that I see <equals>56, rather than <equals>256, although the
exact behaviour is error recovery dependent.
You haven't included the trace, so I don't know what you mean by packets
3 and 4. If you included these as an attachment, please note that the
mailing list is not the real forum, it is just a convenience for
accessing the newsgroup comp.protocols.time.ntp, which is a non-binaries
group, so should not have attachments (and any may well have been
stripped by the gateway as a result).
