[ntp:questions] Having problems running two different kinds of authentiation on the same client?

I am trying to connect to two different NTP Servers, each using a
different type of authentication (one uses IFF, the second GQ).

The IFF connection works fine, but the GQ never seems to connect.

If I remove all of the IFF keys, the GQ works fine.

Is there a limitation that NTPD can only use one type of authentication
at a time?
