The OP noted he could see the packet exchange happening.  It is not a
connectivity problem or a problem with NTP trying to force a query out
the wrong interface.  It is simply that when both servers are
reachable, there is no overlap in their confidence intervals, so the
client cannot choose and freewheels.
