[ntp:questions] PPS, prefer keywoard and redundant peers

Hi all,

the documentation clearly states that for a PPS driver to work one needs to 
configure another peer as `prefer'.

I have a set-up with PPS and three network (IP) peers, one of these marked 

1) why can't the PPS signal be used to discipline all survivors (assuming 
they meet the requirements for PPS)?

2) if my preferred peer goes away, NTP will not use PPS at all (it looks like 
it becomes the system peer (*) then later a falseticker (x)).  Is there any 
way to make PPS survive a prefer peer loss?

Many thanks.
