I am not quite sure on when to use the iburst option. In our network
there are stratum 2 peers and stratum 3 peers. While configuring I read
about the command options - also about iburst.
The official documentation
"This option is valid only with the server command and type s addresses.
It is a recommended option with this command."
While the ntp.org site
"Use iburst in the appropriate peer or server lines in your
/etc/ntp.conf file for faster sync (i.e. ~8-15 seconds instead of ~5-10
Is the iburst option usable in peers or not?
