Hi NTP folks,
I have a quick query regarding the offset.
I have a box(PC), where the offset is in a negative figure(i guess
-2.900). 
Does it mean that the box's time is higher than the NTP server ?

then the box's time will get reduce till the offset comes close to zero
right ? 

I have a another query regarding the STEP state :(
After reaching the STEP state, it will clears all the filters and start
from the scratch. 
But to start from the scratch, when will the NTP client(box) will query
the NTP server, since i saw the stratum as 16 and everything empty. 

Thanks in advance,
Chansanle
