Then provide valid servers for the upstream server.

Note that one common cause of excessive root distances is trying to 
synchronise to a default installation of w32time, so replace any 
instances of w32time with a copy of the reference ntpd, or change many 
registry keys to make it behave as a valid, if not good, NTP server.
