[ntp:questions] Re: handling of falsetickers with dumb NTP clients

The "new ntp server equipment" can be most any ancient box that has
no other use, or it can be any existing *ix box that has a few spare cycles.

And if you clients are so dumb they can't decide if an upstream is a
falseticker I think you are out of luck.  In that case, even having 3
servers for them to talk to (so if one fails it is a 2-1 vote for sanity)
will not help you.

Any chance you could upgrade this dumb client software?
