[ntp:questions] NTP Reach is Zero but tally code remain *

I have testing the following scenario

*         Configured ntp server (1) to sync with other ntp server(2)- all is working well

*         Stoping ntpd service on server 2

*         I was accepting that once ntp server (1) will have reach value=0, the tally code (*) will be removed, and orphan mode will be available

*         It seems like only if the ntpd is restarted , the orphan mode is activated

*         I would like to be able to activate orphan mode without  restarting the service!

ntp server (1) configuration :

# Permit time synchronization with our time source, but do not
# permit the source to query or modify the service on this system.
restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery

# Permit all access over the loopback interface.  This could
# be tightened as well, but to do so would effect some of
# the administrative functions.
restrict -6 ::1

# Hosts on local network are less restricted.
#restrict mask nomodify notrap

# Use public servers from the pool.ntp.org project.
# Please consider joining the pool (http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html).
#server 0.centos.pool.ntp.org
#server 1.centos.pool.ntp.org
#server 2.centos.pool.ntp.org
server iburst

#broadcast key 42         # broadcast server
#broadcastclient                        # broadcast client
#broadcast key 42             # multicast server
#multicastclient              # multicast client
#manycastserver         # manycast server
#manycastclient key 42  # manycast client

# Undisciplined Local Clock. This is a fake driver intended for backup
# and when no outside source of synchronized time is available.
tos orphan 15
tos maxdist 30
tinker panic 0

# Drift file.  Put this in a directory which the daemon can write to.
# No symbolic links allowed, either, since the daemon updates the file
# by creating a temporary in the same directory and then rename()'ing
# it to the file.
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift

# Key file containing the keys and key identifiers used when operating
# with symmetric key cryptography.
keys /etc/ntp/keys

# Specify the key identifiers which are trusted.
#trustedkey 4 8 42

# Specify the key identifier to use with the ntpdc utility.
#requestkey 8

# Specify the key identifier to use with the ntpq utility.
#controlkey 8

And off course I will appreciate any help (I have no idea what to do...)
10x, Natalie
