The reachability _should_ drop to 0 if the timesource is unavailable.

I would not expect ntpd to stop.  Instead, it ought to continue running, 
using the clock offset it has determined (if available) to continue to 
adjust the clock speed to maintain close to proper time,
until a time source becomes available again.

If that isn't the case, please provide more details.
