[ntp:hackers] Leap second list file

For anyone wanting an alternate location to watch for an updated 
leap-seconds file, it's actually available from many NIST time servers, 
a list of which is available here: http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi

It appears that time.nist.gov is actually a global load balancer, and 
that's what's causing issues when trying to go there. Going directly to 
a server may work better.

For instance, these two worked fine when I just tried:

/pub/leap-seconds.list should always point to the most recent available 
leap-seconds file.
