[ntp:questions] Question about using server stratum 15

I'm taking a wild guess, but generally anything "stratum 16" means
"unsynchronized" or some other similar issue. So if a client
synchronized to a server that was already stratum 15, then the client
would become stratum 16, and maybe that causes some other issues
(either in ntpd or other client software)?

Why on earth are you trying to sync to a stratum 15 server? In this
day and age (or even 8 years ago) you rarely see anything past stratum
