Ok, but it seems that in loops statistic file, the value given for
offset is the value of the ntptrace command result so statitic files
are incorrect??? that is the thing i want to know because i want to see
the performance on NTP on my network, and when i monitor this with
statistic files, i have weird things...
For example, I have a computer on my LAN that is my NTP server. It
synchronizes on NTP's pool.ntp.org server. And all the other computers
of my LAN are synchronized on my NTP server. When I look statistics,
the offset field on the clients have lower value than my ntp server.
Normally, a client machine cannot be more accurate than its server but
it's the case here, because server offset are higher than client...
what is the problem?
