[Pool] From which IP addresses is going monitoring activity?

I think this info need to be private, in order to get a pool with a very
good quality.

As monitoring servers make fewer connection than standard users (and i
don't take care about socity under neted IP), if you need to exclude them
from your ban script, you will ban some (or a lot of) standard users.

On the other way, if this info still private, if you ban monitoring
server, that's mean that you can't accept standard user, and you don't have
your place on the pool.

This is my opinion, and i'm not on NTP staff :).
