Ok. I understand now. It looks as though the server would respond when 
the time wasn't known. It ought to say stratum 16, but maybe it doesn't.

This is an embedded system made out of a GPS receiver and an ARM 
development board. It will also be a PTP (IEEE1588) master. I'm hoping 
to make the code (and parts list) available so that anybody can put one 
together (for < $100)
