Two naive thoughts...
Since this is making people leave the pool, and the abuse seems to come
from a specific source. Is it impossible to get your local ISP to block
the NTP port for trafic from TT in their routers? Thus making TT requests
not even reach you. Since it is an ISP not playing nice, maybe this
problem should be taken care of at the ISP level.
On the other side... we (the pool project) are controlling the DNS-round
robin? Can the DNS system identify TT requests? If so, either drop those
requests or direct them to servers with the bandwidth/CPU-power to cope
with the abuse. Sure, this would add complexity, but maybe its worth it
compared to loosing lots of time servers.
