I'm seeing events on our network for a host that is resolving to the following pools for ntp.  What I'm also seeing is an occasional event related to traffic over port 123 to a known tor relay/router node that also appears to be participating in your ntp pool.  I figured I would point it out to you all to see if you can investigate further and whether this ip should be in the ntp pool.  The destination IP we're resolving that is matching this event is  Below is also a link to a tor status page where this IP is listed.  We're configured to resolve to the following servers and it appears to be in 0.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org.  Please let me know if you need anything further.  Thanks for the help.


Supporting information where this ip is listed...
