[ntp:questions] monitoring symmetric peers

Hi all,

I have two Debian etch ntp servers, running on stock 2.6.18-5-amd64
kernel with ntp 4.2.2p4 at 1.1585-o. The two systems are configured as
stratum 2 ntp servers, synchronised with various public stratum 1
servers. They are configured as symmetric active peers.

How can I ensure that the two servers are actually symmetric peers? When
I list their associations, I can see that each server lists the other
one as reject, outlyer or falseticker. I understand that they couldn't
be sys.peers, but shouldn't they be candindates for each other, in that
way participating in the cluster?

Thanks in advance,

Kostas Magkos
