[ntp:questions] Prefer peers when using PPS driver

Hi --

A question about configuring the prefer peer when using the PPS driver 
with a source that provides only the PPS signal and no other timecode.

It seems that having to designate a single remote server as the prefer 
peer causes a weakness -- if that remote server goes away, the PPS 
driver is disabled.

Is this a situation where specifying more than one prefer peer makes 
sense (assuming that all are of roughly equal, high, quality)?  Will 
anything bad happen from doing this?
