I have a processor that has a serial GPS reference clock and also is
configured with the local clock as a higher stratum backup source.  If
I unplug the serial GPS source, how long after the polling timer
expires until the GPS reference is not considered the prefered
server(asterix before the server name when running "ntpq -p" command).
I plan on trying it out later and seeing if I can tune the overall time
it takes by changing the "maxpoll" value, but I wanted to know how long
after the poll timer expires until xntpd decides to not use that source
as a server due to not being reachable.
