Given the fact that configuring two servers is worse than just one, and 
definitely worse than three, would it be an idea for ntpd to output a 
warning in its logfile about this:

- upon startup (if at the end of config file processing the number of 
associations (not including the local clock) is two

- at any time thereafter if as a result of an ntpdc unconfig command the 
number of associations (not including the local clock) becomes two

Just a thought. Might promote good practice.
