Any NTP documentation distributed as man pages is produced by third
parties and should not be viewed as authoritative.

The NTP Reference Implemenatation Distribution Documentation is
distributed as HTML and may be found in the ./html directory in
the Distribution. It is also available on-line. Some OS vendors
/ distributors / aggregators may package this HTML documentation
separately from the NTP binaries.

The current documentation for the NTP Development tree is always
available at http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/. Access through
our non-caching proxy at http://archive.ntp.org/html/ is available for
anyone who is unable to use the primary documentation URL.

Documentation for Production Releases (i.e. stable releases) of The NTP
Reference Implemenation is housed in the NTP Documentation Archive at
