please note that you can set up a single machine and enter a bunch of
"server" lines with different IP addresses of other machines in the config
file. So this machine polls all other machines and they are all listed in a
single billboard output by the "ntpq -p" command. So your script can
eventually just evaluate the output of a single "ntpq -p" command.
