[ntp:questions] pruning the pool?

Greetings.  I'm new here, so please be gentle.

My servers are configured to use
server 0.us.pool.ntp.org
server 1.us.pool.ntp.org
server 2.us.pool.ntp.org
server 3.us.pool.ntp.org

Through what I presume is a fluke of the DNS randomization, three of
my four hosts were:    .INIT.          16 u  390  512    0    0.000    0.000 4000.00    .INIT.          16 u  378  512    0    0.000    0.000 4000.00    .INIT.          16 u  384  512    0    0.000    0.000 4000.00

I tried searching the NTP web sites to figure out who maintains the NTP
pools, and this was the best lead I got.  If these hosts are no longer
offerring NTP, can they (and perhaps others in that same net block)  be
removed from the pool?
