Additionally, it seems that even though the poll is stated to be
1024s, it's actually reached every 64s:

     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay
offset  jitter
==============================================================================
 NTP.MCAST.NET   .ACST.          16 u    -   64    0    0.000
0.000   0.002
+foo             29.46.4.151      2 u   62 1024  377    0.202
-2.712   0.249
*bar             29.46.4.151      2 u   62 1024  377    0.189
-3.117   0.207

And then, a few seconds later:

     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay
offset  jitter
==============================================================================
 NTP.MCAST.NET   .ACST.          16 u    -   64    0    0.000
0.000   0.002
+foo             29.46.4.151      2 u    2 1024  377    0.202
-2.712   0.249
*bar             29.46.4.151      2 u    2 1024  377    0.189
-3.117   0.207

What gives?

TIA
