Hi Dave,
	See Danny's mail below, in reply to mine.

Please let me know what configuration can be used for the scenario below.
Any ideas on what configuration Danny is refering to and where i can find
documentation for the same ??

Yes, Dave recently implemented a new scheme which basically does that. I
don't know a lot about it, but it's in the latest ntp-dev tarballs.

I don't know what you mean by "cluster/survivor". There is of course the
local clock and Manycast schemes, both of which are documented, and the
new orphan scheme, which is also documented. See the latest
documentation on the web.
