# ALL (Clients and/or Servers)
#  Start the Service with C:\Program Files\NTP\bin\ntpd.exe -U 3 -M -g -c "C:\Program Files\NTP\etc\ntp.conf"

# If you address the server by name append preempt
# Let NTP worry about the minpoll and maxpoll for LAN devices

# They should all try to sync to 10.1.126.204
#  If they can't reach 10.1.126.204 they should all try to stick together

# NTP expects to be run continuously; After a Boot/Reboot/Restart/...
#  give the systems 30 minutes to stabilize polls and temperature
#   before expecting too much from the ntpq stats
