Why, it does. I had tried it just after restarting NTP and of course
it said "stratum 16". My mind then convinced me all on its own that
this was a bug I'd heard about here and that it got broken or something.

Not sure if I'll ever get around to installing Perl, considering how
I don't need it for _anything_ else. Yet.
