I use ntpdate command in crond to synchronize local clock of my Linux
I run ntpdate -B -s ntp1.ien.it ntp2.ien.it

1- NTP algorithm will choose best time, so is't possible client
retrieves time from ntp1 server or ntp2 ? Can you confirm me this
behaviour ?
2- Does it exist way to retrieve time ALWAYS from same server (for
example ntp1) and only if it is not available gets time from second
server (ntp2) ?
