Yesterday I specified
minpoll 6 maxpoll 8
for my local references, but no explicit values for the remote, public
timeservers in /etc/ntp.conf.
Now, 11 hours after restart, the actual values for poll in
show no value higher than 256.
As I remember poll went very fast to 1024 without any minpoll or maxpoll
in the config.
As I do not want to produce to much traffic on public servers, shall I
specify something like
minpoll 8 maxpoll 10
