There have been plenty of improvemnets since 4.2.6p5 circa 2011Dec24

# ALL (Clients and/or Servers)
#  Start the Service with C:\Program Files\NTP\bin\ntpd.exe -U 3 -M -g -c "C:\Program Files\NTP\etc\ntp.conf"
#   the -g will prevent a panic stop if the time needs to be steped when started

# ntp.conf

server iburst key 123

# If you address the server by name append preempt
# Let NTP worry about the minpoll and maxpoll for LAN devices

# They should all try to sync to
#  If they can't reach they should all try to stick together

# NTP expects to be run continuously; After a Boot/Reboot/Restart/...
#  give the systems 30 minutes to stabilize polls and temperature
#   before expecting too much from the ntpq stats
