[ntp:questions] server's address in ntp payload?

Hello all

I have take a look at ntp_request.h and I found that ntp doesn't put the the ip
address of the remote server being used in the request. That is, in the
ntp payload you can obtain the addresses of the peers and reference clocks of the
server but not the address of the server itself, and therefore the only way
to get the address of the server is looking at the IP header.

Am I wrong?

Thanks in advance
