I say again with considerable emphasis: this is a Microsoft product, not 
the NTPv4 distribution that leaves here. What you see is what you get, 
warts and all. I doubt it has anything to do with root distance, or any 
other public specification, but that doesn't make any difference if the 
customer is satisfied with the performance. Just don't compare it with 
anything in the NTP distribution, documentation or specification.
