I am using GPS with PPS as my primary time source. I don't want
to set my back-up network servers to minpoll 10 in the
configuration because if the GPS ever fails the servers would be
fixed at minpoll 10. I propose an enhancement to the current NTPD
functions: Have NTPD automatically set network clocks to minpoll
10 when using a stratum 0 clock as a time refference. This would
cut network traffic and server load while still allowing a minpoll
6 setting or lower in the configuration to be used if the
refference clock ever fails.
