In particular, most of the differences are in the client side 
processing.  On the other hand, w32time uses the NTPV3 wire formats, 
which is another indication that the server may be an out of the box 
w32time (it is possible to tune w32time to comply with NTP, but out of 
the box, it doesn't - the reference implementation has better 
interpolation of ticks than w32time, even when that is tuned up).

that is Microsoft's default server.
