[Pool] DDOS protection check?

Just a thought:

The rogue ones could use a botnet to send junk in a DDOS attack,
send that junk directly from the bots to the victim
with no NTP server involved, but nevertheless
the bots could forge the sender address to make it _appear_
the junk comes from legitimate NTP servers -
hoping the victim's provider's admins will be fooled
into contacting the NTP servers' admins.
