I think you are seeing the correct and expected behavior.

The root cause here is that the majority of the upstream servers are
*incorrectly* not advertising the leap second.

There have been problems before where a misconfigured server has
incorrectly advertised a non-existent leap-second, and in cases where
folks had an adequate number of correctly configured servers, this
mistake was properly ignored.

I have not been closely following this thread, so I might be missing

It's pretty easy to download and install a leapsecond file, and ntpd
will pay attention to that...

Or am I missing something?
