Are you sure about that?  If it doesn't work without the local clock,
that implies more problems than just the peer loop error we've seen.

Another thing you could try is to use a different unit number for the
local clock on the RHEL server: instead of

server # local clock
fudge stratum 10


server # local clock
fudge stratum 10

That should avoid the peer loop.
