[ntp:questions] NTP Stratum 16?

I'm trying to set up an ntpd server for my home network, but for some reason
ntpd decides that it is stratum 16 and does not synchronize:

ntpq> readlist
status=c011 sync_alarm, sync_unspec, 1 event, event_restart,
version="ntpd 4.1.1b at 1.829 Fri Sep 26 21:41:19 EST 2003 (1)",
processor="i686", system="Linux2.4.20-xfs-r3", leap=11, stratum=16,
precision=-17, rootdelay=0.000, rootdispersion=9.060, peer=0,
refid=, reftime=00000000.00000000  Thu, Feb  7 2036  1:28:16.000,
poll=4, clock=c321da06.51a261bf  Sun, Sep 28 2003 17:07:02.318, state=0,
offset=0.000, frequency=0.000, jitter=0.008, stability=0.000

The log has nothing useful:

28 Sep 16:56:57 ntpd[23564]: signal_no_reset: signal 17 had flags 4000000

And I am completely mystified. Maybe refid of has something to do
with it? Isn't that supposed to be my IP?
