He's talking about using burst on a refclock.  The problem is that this is a
logical extension of the purpose of burst to a realm where it has not been
implemented.  There is no "downside" as one will cause no extra traffic; the
intente would be to "listen to more frequent answers".

For some refclocks this make sense (as they may provide timestamps once per
second), and I believe Dave has done some work on handling this case for
some refclocks.
