I reconfigured the clients to use all 6 internal NTP servers. Let's see 
how that goes.

I wish there was a way to "bind" several clients together. You know, 
tell them to make "group decisions" when following / unfollowing any 
servers - "y'all either follow the same server(s), or peer with each 
other when all servers are offline, but do it _all_together_". This 
would be very useful for a cluster.
