These are the flash codes that I found in 3-5.92. They probably apply to
your situation but I don't guarantee it.

 * Define flasher bits (tests 1 through 8 in packet procedure)
 * These reveal the state at the last grumble from the peer and are
 * most handy for diagnosing problems, even if not strictly a state
 * variable in the spec. These are recorded in the peer structure.
#define TEST1		0x01	/* duplicate packet received */
#define TEST2		0x02	/* bogus packet received */
#define TEST3		0x04	/* protocol unsynchronized */
#define TEST4		0x08	/* peer delay/dispersion bounds check */
#define TEST5		0x10	/* peer authentication failed */
#define TEST6		0x20	/* peer clock unsynchronized */
#define TEST7		0x40	/* peer stratum out of bounds */
#define TEST8		0x80	/* root delay/dispersion bounds check */
