It's not a case of adding a workaround, rather that an existing
workaround has been removed.
Was there a decision made to break the existing pragmatic behaviour
("peer ..." works like "server ..." for an unauthenticated client ntpd),
or is it an avoidable (even unpredicted) side-effect of the w32time
change? If avoidable, I suggest the previous behaviour be reinstated.
If decided upon, it should be documented.
