It is interesting that the problem solves itself after a reboot.  And it
would be even more interesting to try at least one machine with a recent
version of NTP to see if the problem repeats itself.  If that happens,
we'd be very interested in getting to the bottom of the problem.

I did notice that the system that has the problem you mentioned with the
host that does unicast is an outlier...
