Thank you: I had no discard command. So now I tried on both the server
and the client:

| discard average 3
| server <ip> minpoll 3

Still same symptoms: The machines don't discipline their clocks. Until
the poll interval ramps to 16 seconds on the client. Forever on the
server, whose refclock sticks to minpoll. And ntptime shows time
constant 0 for minpoll 3 as well as for minpoll 4.
