[ntp:questions] Best practice: re-resolve server IP address before each poll/query

One of my favourite articles on the interweb is the following (about the 
Netgear/UWisc debacle).


In the list of best practice recommendations it makes about SNTP 
implementations, it says:

"SHOULD resolve the server IP address via DNS before each poll/query, so 
that the pertinent DNS entries' Time-To-Live values are respected."

I was wondering whether the readership of this forum feels that this 
should also apply to NTP implementations.

Cheers, Jan
