My ntp2.tmsw.no pool server is ipv6-only...

It is also reachable behind tmsw.dyndns.org over ipv4, but since that 
address is dynamic there is no guarantee that it will be stable.

I.e. you would need something like the pool logic to redo the DNS every 
day/hour or when the DNS time-to-live has expired.
