Still working out the issues with the crashing but this is a new 
question so a new thread.

Here is the peer list from ntpq.  My question is, what has determined 
that the remote peer 130.207.165.28 is the best one to sync against even 
though it has the worst offset and jitter.  It consistently stays this 
way no matter how long ntpd is running.
