The ntp.conf of the master time server using local clock contains the 

fudge stratum 13

As a master time server using system time on the current machine, the syntax 
is (reference 
http://www.ntp.org/ntpfaq/NTP-s-refclk.htm#Q-LOCAL-CLOCK) but in my master 
time server, it is set to127.127.1.0. Is there any difference?

If the master time server booted up after 2 hours of shutdown (switch off) 
and it's time is 2 hours earlier, what could be wrong?

Server: SUN
OS: Solaris 8
ntpq> version
ntpq 3-5.93e

Thanks in advance for any pointer.
