I edit the server's conf file.
server broadcast stratum 10
also start the ntp deamon with -A option.
but still there is the same problem.
i analyze the network and i can not see any ntp packages at the server side.
it doesnot broadcast the ntp packages to the 
what can be the problem.
by the way do i need to give drift file to make broadcast server work?
