Being unable to use the PPS unless either a prefer peer is set or
another knob is adjusted (see what I quoted earlier) is operating by
design. The change in operation with flag3 1 seems likely to me to be
an ntpd bug, which is why I'd like to see a bug report filed. Unless
I'm missing some design intention, it seems to me PPS should not
become reachable with no prefer peer regardless of flag3.
