I'm seeing an ntpq -p display like:

*  server-A  377
   server-B  377
   server-C  377

i.e. server B and C have a space rather than any other character.  Those 
servers are fine, but they are both actually syncing from server A.  Space 
appears to be defined as:

"The peer is discarded as unreachable, synchronized to this server (synch
loop) or outrageous synchronization distance."

Should:  "synchronized to this server's source" also be in that list?
