Good point - I'll go experiment.
broadcastclient on it's own causes the client show a line in the ntpq output that had reach 000 and
INIT for the servers.
broadcastclient key 1 has the client work (reach goes up and it syncs) and it sends 1 packet to the
server but doesn't set the RTT (at least as ntpq displays it)
Either way it's not doing what the doc says ....
