After going down the rabbit hole, I learnt that w32time is very poor.
And now my problem jots down to a single question: In versions of
xntp, the sanity checks of the clock-selection procedure shows that the
(peer->dispersion is compared with NTP_MAXDISTANCE). But the RFC
suggests of using peer->synchdistance. Why is this =><= ?? I found
that peer->dispersion is a subset in composing
peer->synchdistance...but using synchdistance according to RFC could
make the clock selection more strict right ?
Please correct me if I am wrong and let me know why there is a
difference in implementing. I could not find the BugID that made this
Thanks for your time
