So, it seems things are gradually settling. After the leap took
place it looks like more stratum 1 servers were unsynchronised than
usual. The number of people with the leap bits set is dropping, but
isn't quite zero yet. I'll keep updating the graphs at:


I have the peers information from our local ntp server around the
