See http://bugs.ntp.org/1887 -- 4.2.7p153 has a bug on systems using
threads that prevents DNS lookups from working.  Revert to the
work_thread.c from 4.2.7p152 or wait for 4.2.7p154's fix.

The behavior Hal referred to regarding entries not showing up in the
peers billboard applies to pool and manycast associations, which are
hidden by default until they receive at least one response.  ntpq -c
lpeers is like ntpq -c peers and ntpq -p, but lpeers will show
automatically-spun associations with 0 reach.
