[ntp:hackers] preliminary: not close to flying colors...

So far it looks like FreeBSD has done the right thing on all the
machines I've checked.

I also picked 12 IP#'s from pool.ntp.org to watch and that's a mixed bag.

Two stratum 1's did not announce the leapsecond, but seems to have stepped
their local clock nontheless.

Another stratum 2 was "DCFa" and as expected it flashed the leap bit only
in the last hour before the event.

Almost one hour later, three stratum 3's still show the bit.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
