I'm interested in exact polling moments of NTP client. Consider for 
example that I have polling interval set fixed to 16 seconds. Are the 
requests sent instantly as the second of the clock of the client 
changes? For example: previous polling time: 12.30:40:00, next polling 
time: 12.30:56:00. I mean that polling happens always as xx.xx:xx:99 
changes to xx.xx:xx:00. For example not like this: prev poll: 
12.30:40:78, next poll: 12.30:56:78.

Best Regards,
