Ah, I found the instructions about using the file:


I had the impression, falsely, from the way people were talking that it 
was an OS thing, and not an NTP thing.

Still don't know if Windows supports it.  I also see that entry format is 
different for the current entry compared to all previous, so I hope the 
white-space count isn't important....
