TIA,

If the interval between packets from a particular client is less than 2 
seconds of if the average interval is less than 16 seconds, the server 
returns a kiss-o'-death (KoD) packet and drops the client packet. This 
causes a compliant ntpd client to disable the association and show an 
appropriate kiss code. KoD packets can be sent for other reasons as 
well. Kiss codes are documented in the somftware distribution.
