Cool :-)

Also nice and pool-friendly would be if ntpd would resolve the DNS name
a second time when an association is dead more than, say, a few hours
(I guess this could be as high as 24h or even a week).  I don't know
the ntp code, but I suspect this might require quite a hack, as ntpd
right now doesn't automatically change its configuration after start
up...
