[ntp:questions] Manycast

I'm trying to figure out how to get manycast working, so I set up 3
computers to be clients:

disable auth
enable bclient
tos orphan 8
manycastclient 224.0.1.1
manycastserver 224.0.1.1

And one computer to be a server:

disable auth
manycastclient 224.0.1.1
manycastserver 224.0.1.1
server   pool.ntp.org iburst
server 0.pool.ntp.org
server 1.pool.ntp.org
server 2.pool.ntp.org
server 3.pool.ntp.org

Nevertheless, the clients just never synchronize with the server.

Sometimes, if a client is powered on, it does find the server, however
sometimes it drops the association to never find the server again.

I'm using 4.2.4p7 in all 4 computers.

What gives?

TIA
