This might be two questions.
When the ntpq -np command is issued, the second column is labeled REFID.

The number in the second column are always different from the numbers
in the first column. I do not unstand the significance of the REFID
numbers.
I recognize that they are IP numbers, but what is the relationship?

The term "reference clock" appears frequently in this newsgroup. It
appears
that is used to talk about the one clock with an asterisk beside it. Is
that
correct?

Tnx,
Charles
