Please do rv 61694, etc., but using the current assID values.

You have some rather strange domain names as sources.  Are these by any 
chance local machines running w32time.  A common reason for rejecting 
w32time is that it is reporting very large root dispersions, because it 
hasn't been synchronised sufficiently recently to provide a time with 
acceptable error bounds.
