Ok. But what about

ServerA ntp.conf

server time.windows.com

ServerB ntp.conf

peer ServerA

Then Serverb is trying to peer with ServerA. But ServerA doesn't have a
peer directive - what happens here ? Also, what's the difference
between this and ServerC doing ntpdate ServerA ???

I just don't see what's betweenpeer and ntpdate. (I don't think Server
B with a peer ServerA 'sends' time to server A  - it will only give
time to ServerA if serverA asks for it so what's the difference ???)
