thanks for reply.
Yes, this is my problem that address is allocated for ipv4 address, so
i can't see my complete ipv6 address, and i am not able to know that
what is complete ipv6 address of server i am synced with ( like in
this case, i am synced with server 2001:5b0:3eff:fffa::310 while i see
only 2001:5b0:3eff:f as output of ntpq -p) . I there any other way to
know the server i am synced with.

Regards,
Atul.
