Howdy guys!
   I was wondering if anyone could enumerate on the reasons why one
would want to configure an ntp in a broadcast/multi-cast mode.  Do we
see siginifcant network performance issues in client/server mode?  I
know that the management of the NTP configuration could be simplified if
the bc/mc mode is used, but are there any other benefits?  What about
drawbacks?

Thanks all!
Matt
