Uhm, are we speaking about the same program? That's exactly
the kind of information that ntptrace does _not_ display.
It displays the stratum, offset and sync distance of clients
which are synchronized. For non-synchronized machines it
displays nothing useful at all. The output of "ntpq -p" is
extremely valuable in such cases.

Hm, yes, it seems so. Thanks for the heads-up.
