I've just joined the pool with a server running ntpd 4.2.4p4.
I would like to have done well, so I post here the configuration for
comments if needed.

1/ ntpd is lauched with option -g

2/ here is ntpd.conf :

statsdir /var/log/ntpstats/
statistics loopstats peerstats clockstats
filegen loopstats file loopstats type day enable
filegen peerstats file peerstats type day enable
filegen clockstats file clockstats type day enable

driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
