It uses NTPv3 packets.  There are some violations.  Some may hvae been 
removed out of the box, and the others can be removed using registry 
settings.  The violations I am aware of having existed at some time are 
always sending stratum 2 (I think this was a misreading of SNTP) and 
using a peer mode rather than a client mode.
