I don't see them as being servers for each other, but rather as a
reversible connection. I think that that is what is supposed to happen
as far as selecting stratum and system peer is concerned, although I
don't think you can avoid some tendency to have one's one time fed back,
as not just the system peer contributes to the time.
It will take a long time to wind up the stratum number, but, unless you
have prphan mode, it should happen until it eventually reaches 16.
