If the PTS is connected to a reference clock, why does it report
itself as a stratum 2 with a refid of either 73.78.73.84 or LOCAL(0),
as shown in the original posting:

[root at screamer-dc1 init.d]# ntpq -p
     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay
offset  jitter

 ntp             73.78.73.84      2 u   30   64   37    0.694
0.043   0.676

0.043   2.276
