Yes, I went there to search on the word dynamic. I got junk.
I finally tracked down by going from page to page from www.ntp.org

Note that if you say the option is not implimented because it is the

 does not mean the same as "implimented by default", although I can imagine
arguments by a lawyer to say those statements are not mutually exclusive.
