As far as I know, the Windows kernel does not support leap seconds.
Does the Windows port of ntpd try to be clever, by stepping/slewing the
system clock immediately after the leap second. Or does it wait for the
next server poll, then wait another 15 minutes before stepping, in the
usual way ?

Cheers
