I wonder if that is still the case in "5.10" Anyway, does ntpdate set
the AI_ADDRCONFIG flag?  If not, doing so should prevent it from
getting IPv6 answers when there is no IPv6 address configured on the
system running ntpdate.

Whether ntpdate should be enhanced to walk the list I guess would be
an open question.

The glass is neither half-empty nor half-full. The glass has a leak.
The real question is "Can it be patched?"
these opinions are mine, all mine; HP might not want them anyway... :)
feel free to post, OR email to rick.jones2 in hp.com but NOT BOTH...
