When using sntp, is there a status word available somewhere from which i can translate what the exact error is?
I have f.e. the following output on the terminal:
...is not authentic. Will discard it.
and Received no useable packet from ...

However, i prefer polling a status word (like in http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/decode.html) instead of trying to parse the above logfile word by word to get some feedback from my command.
