I think you are correct.
Have you seen:
There is also "orphan mode", which is described in the miscopt.html page of
recent ntp-dev releases (it is documented in different places in other
versions of ntp-4.2).

Yes, look at the stratum of the two servers.

I don't think so.

"fudge" is a way to change some default behaviors.
Peers exchange time with each other. One only *gets* time from a server,
there is no exchange of time information.
