Folks,

I have the following entries in ntpd.conf:

server 192.168.0.2  iburst maxpoll 6
server 192.168.0.7  maxpoll 6
server 0.uk.pool.ntp.org minpoll 10

.. and the following as the most recent loopstats:

54974 37901.029 -0.000209922 13.840 0.000108471 0.007233 6
54974 38229.033 0.000346890 13.846 0.000221473 0.007179 6
54974 38754.041 -0.000217131 13.840 0.000287548 0.007132 6
54974 38954.047 -0.000091306 13.839 0.000272631 0.006682 6

I note that the times between these four entries are:

328s
525s
200s

As I have maxpoll set to 6, I would have expected entries no more than 64s 
apart.  What am I failing to understand here?  The poll values reported in 
ntpq -p are 64, 64 and 1024 - as expected.

Thanks,
David
