NTP Experts,

I have a Bay Networks router which supports an NTP Client and allows me
to specify a list of NTP Servers.

My question is regarding the amount of traffic the NTP protocol will
generate on the network.  How often does an NTP Client poll the NTP
Server?  Unlike other IP protocols there doesnt seem to be a fixed
timer interval.
