The only table I can find on the official site is:
where the description is: "discarded as not valid (TEST10-TEST13)"
Search Google with the exact phrase: "The peer is discarded as
unreachable, synchronized to this server (synch loop) or outrageous
synchronization distance." and you get three pages of hits. These appear
to refer to the man page for ntpq(8) which I don't have.
