The problem is that
- the servers often will continue to send 1 packet per second
- the "admin" of the problematic system will never notice, because the
clock will be adequate enough without external sync
By returning a completely bogus time, we hope that the admins of the
problematic systems will notice that something is wrong with their time
server set up.
