I would appreciate if you can provide it so at least i can get rid of these

We have a requirement for NTP service for two different networks: public
(not important, can have outages), private (important). we are trying to
have separate process for each network in case high load come from the
public domain (or for any security issue). We will have more control on the
public NTP where we can set the resources for it at the OS level. in
addition, at any point of time we can migrate the private NTP to a
dedicated machine (currently we have only one machine) once the hardware is
not capable to handle both. In this case we will not have to change the NTP
IPs in the clients configurations (private).
