[ntp:questions] NTP and reference-source evaluation?

Does the current v4 and previous v3 NTP algorithms evaluate a server or
peer's source of time, at all?

That is, when a local client or a peer gets time from a remote server or
peer, can or does the local client or peer additionally evaluate the
remote server or peer's source or reference?  Say the remote server or
peer gave the local client or peer a time based on LCL and, thus, it's
potentially lower quality time weighed against other servers/peers.
