It will be interesting to see what difference that makes, Ron, and I look
forward to seeing the graphs.
Personally, I saw little to choose between the various Internet servers
you had, and I would have allowed four or five to be selected rather than
just one, as that would not then leave NTP open to failure of the one
server, and it would allow NTP to select what It believes to be the best.
