Yes, I must have edited a file like that when I set up my own FreeBSD
system. I would take issue with:
- no drift file appears to be specified (although it is mentioned) - I
- why add maxpoll 9 to all the servers? That seems wrong. I see the

FreeBSD.". So is that a FreeBSD specific issue, and if so, why not fix it
in the OS?
