'ntppub.tamu.edu' usually has 'clepsydra.dec.com' as its selected time source. I just use that server instead of tamu's...

'ntp.rice.edu' is their ntp server that is publically accessible. I contacted them a while back to let them know to update their NTP
version and also see if they would lower their maxpoll for their local S1 servers since they appear to have both an internal GPS &
CDMA source, but no such luck.

For what it is worth, my server often selects 'utcnist.colorado.edu' as the primary choice even though it is further away than most
of the other S1 & S2's in my ntp list.
