You use a high stratum number for that. The default is too low for
nearly all time island cases, and if you have a time island that really
has that many strata, that is the case when you should be carefully
choosing values, not accepting defaults.
I therefore assumed that the default had been chosen for the
synchronized by other means case. That case goes back for the best part
of two decades.
