That's quite easy, but I can't see a case which applies here (using a 
not recently synchronised w32time server (NAT would make no difference), 
kiss of death because of the excess query rate from the router (I think 
the refid would be special); the two servers have error bands that do 
not overlap (I can't remember whether this would produce a special flag 
in the ntpq output))

That does sound like kiss of death, except for the refid.

What would help is the result of running rv against each association ID, 
to get the detailed state for the association.
