I have successfully created the links as directed.
When I start ntpd, it quickly acquires the network servers I've
configured but says nothing about 127.127.30.0!
sunblok_# ntpq -p
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset
+louie.udel.edu 188.8.131.52 2 u 55 64 37 23.588 0.485
+filbert.cc.colu 184.108.40.206 2 u 58 64 37 13.085 3.677

*LOCAL(0) LOCAL(0) 10 l 52 64 377 0.000 0.000
The relevant portion of /etc/ntp.conf is:
# NTP Time Servers
# Reference Clock (Motorola Oncore M12)
server 127.127.30.0 prefer
fudge 127.127.30.0 stratum 0
and all of /etc/oncore.0
sunblok_# more oncore0
# Reference Clock configuration for Motorola Oncore M12
MODE 4 # Hard reset, do site survey.
LAT 39 45.3802 # Positive is North.
LONG -75 04.273775 # Negative is West
HTGPS 104.5 # Height in feet.
It seems obvious that I'm still missing something.
