[ntp:questions] Windows Time with NTPv4

I haven't observed this behavior since Windows 2000. But then again, I
am explicitly telling w32time to use a client-mode association on my
wondows boxes.

w32tm /configure /manualpeerlist:"pool.ntp.org,0x8" /
syncfromflags:MANUAL /update

The 0x8 part tells it to use a client-mode association. The default is
time.windows.com,0x1, which is "specail poll interval".

This is documented here:

I will do some further testing on this point to see what happens when
you do not specify the association mode.
