11 I take it that you stick with the default ntp configuration, with
12 syncing from a pool. I do not; I have found a few public stratum 1
13 servers relatively close to me, and I use them in general, via their IP
14 addresses and not via their DNS names.
16 On my desktop and on my Pi, which do not need mobility, I don't even do
17 that: I sync to my router. It makes a fine stratum 2 NTP server :-)
