Have ntp 4.1.1 under AIX 4.3.3.  on intranet
in ntp.conf if I put

server aserver.com

where aserver.com resolves to

then run ntpd -D 3 I never see ntpd sending anything to aserver.com

if, instead, I put in ntp.conf


then ntpd works properly

If I use ntpd on linux then names/IP-address both work !!

Whats going on under AIX ?
