Yes: "peer synchronization loop"

I tend to use Google, which for "ntpq" brings up:
Unfortunately, that page doesn't have any explanation of the codes, indeed
the section "peers" is confusing to me in that the columns are listed as:
ind assid status conf reach auth condition last_event cnt
which doesn't seem to agree with the output I see, for example:
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset
*feenix .GPS. 1 u 246 512 377 1.109 -0.261
or the table below in the document. It's in the table below where the
meaning of the letters could be added.
