I just tested broadcastclient under Windows and saw that the association
created based on the received ntp broadcasts is listed just like any
I thought that the "t" column refers to the association type, which can
be "l" (for local refclocks such as hardware refclocks or the LOCAL
refclock), "u" for "Unicast", "m" for "Multicast" and "b" for
Is this a bug(tm) or a feature(tm), in other words: Is it really wanted
to let broadcast associations look like unicast associations or did I
get the meaning of the "t" column wrong?
